Military & Overseas (UOCAVA) Voting
Millions of citizens are living, traveling, studying, working and serving overseas (classified under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act – UOCAVA Citizens). Their votes can be crucial in deciding an election outcome in their home country.
However, the current military / overseas voting system makes it frustratingly difficult for citizens overseas to have their say.
“challenges faced by military voters are immense. As America’s most mobile population, military voters are constantly on the go moving from one duty station to the next. If they have any hope of voting, military voters are required to navigate a confusing array of state absentee voting laws. In many cases, the request for an absentee ballot never comes or comes too late to vote” – Military Voter Protection Project
While the military abroad have been subject to an incredibly logistically complicated process, with limited transparency, reliability, and access, that does not have to be the case.
Finally, a smart solution for military & overseas voting
Votem provides the most secure and reliable military and overseas voting app on the market, going above and beyond UOCAVA and MOVE Act standards.
Secure online voting for overseas citizens eliminates the risk of:
- lost or damaged mail, mail delays and disruptions such as postal service strikes
- ballot cards sent to the wrong address or discarded because they were filled out incorrectly or ambiguously
- hanging chads
- fraudulent votes
- privacy risks.
It’s an electronic voting system that just makes sense. And it’s only a matter of time before it becomes the norm.
