September 10, 2012 Operation Count US In Dear Senator, I emailed you yesterday about the Pentagon inspector generals

report stating that investigators had been unable to contact voting-assistance offices at more than half of the militarys 229 bases worldwide. As a result, and ask you know, 6 Republican senators sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Panetta telling him that Pentagon officials are ignoring the 2009 law that ordered the military to set up special voting-assistance offices at EVERY military base around the world, to make sure troops get assistance navigating all the different states' registration and absentee voting requirements to make sure their ballots are mailed in time. As a follow up to my initial post on Facebook and other social media outlets, I have initiated a grass roots campaign: Operation: Count Us In. The Facebook page link is: http://www.facebook.com/OperationCountUSIn?ref=hl Here is a link to my Scribd document of that name: http://www.scribd.com/doc/105363079/Operation-Count-US-In?secret_password=iayqvhquuf96xo3tm6f This document provides Americans with the sample text of the message that I sent to every Republican member of both the Subcommittee on Defense (of the Senate Appropriations Committee) as well as the Senate Committee on Armed Services, as well as their contact information: Telephone numbers to their D.C. and state offices; direct links to their Facebook pages and email forms at their web sites. WE are all ordinary Americans capable of doing extra-ordinary things. WE do have the power to make some noise. WE are committed to raising this issue to the level it deserves for the attention it needs from those who serve their constituents. OUR troops serve to defend OUR right to vote, and now WE must make sure they DO. Will YOU, Senator? Sincerely, Lori Boxer
