Navy making sure sailors helping with Sandy recovery get a chance to vote

 (CNN) - The U.S. military, both active duty and guardsmen, are helping the areas hit hardest by Superstorm Sandy, including making sure the residents can vote Tuesday.

But the U.S. Navy has to not only worry about helping civilians, but also about taking care of some sailors who find themselves at sea when it's time to vote.

    Most will vote for Romney so DEFINITELY make sure tey vote and that it is counted! After what Obama did in Benghazi most of the military want a new Commander in Chief.

    Bravo to the Navy and Coast Guard. These people deserve being given the ability to vote since it is their service to their country that hampers that no just "inconvenience" cited by others as disenfranchising.

    Now that is democracy and patriotism. Our soldiers are trying to help people vote, not suppress their vote as gov. scott is in florida. Please florida, boot him out when you get a chance. He is no patriot. People died so that we could have the right to vote. Bless the victims of Sandy, our hearts and prayers are with you.

    It is good that they are able to help people in the recovery. It is a positive thing that the sailors had a chance to vote for their next commander in chief.
