Pentagon defends military voting assistance

(CNN) - Assistance to military voters is the best it has ever been, the Pentagon said on Wednesday in rebutting criticism that it is not helping troops navigate the voting process.

"Voting assistance for our absentee military and overseas citizen voters has never been better," said Pam Mitchell, the acting director of the Federal Voting Assistance Program, which oversees the effort.

    If they are citizens, then they should get help from any and all levels of government to vote. I have no problem with this.

    The military vote is crucial. The military keep the US safe. Every effort must be made to ensure proper representation of the military vote.
