By: Janessa Schilmoeller At Secure Families Initiative, we are dedicated to elevating the stories of military partners and family members on policy matters that impact our community – especially foreign policy. A critical part of making sure our voices get heard begins at the ballot box.
Your calendar is already overloaded and overwhelming. It’s nearly impossible to remember voter dates – trust us, we know! That’s why we’re excited to share this awesome deadline reminder tool so you never miss a voting date again.
According to the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP), military voters were 27% less likely to have voted in 2020 than civilian voters. A huge factor behind this discrepancy are the unique obstacles that military voters face when trying to cast their ballots – from complicated residency questions to international mail delays.
Secure Families Initiative is dedicated to promoting voter participation among military families, and ensuring that our community can cast our ballots without hesitation or complication. As part of that mission, we want to do our part to combat mis- and dis-information as it relates to voting and elections.
