The Disenfranchisement of Disabled and Injured Veterans

I've been following this story for about a week now and am just unbelieveably shocked by it! How could the VA take a position that it cannot allow disabled veterans in it's facility register to vote?!? This is a disgrace to America and we must find a way to make this outrage stop.

These men and women fought for our country, gave their health and youth to democracy and they are being denied the right to vote???

  • Write your Congresspeople!
  • Write the VA!
  • Write the President!
  • Write your local newspaper and get this story out!
I don't care what it takes, the veterans of our elected official's wars must be allowed to register and vote regardless of their health status or the fact that they are trapped in VA facilities because of their injuries.

The RIGHT to vote is sacred. It must not be infringed by some bureaucratic b.s. in the Executive Branch.

What kind of people are they that they think this is okay in America? I thought we were the greatest democracy on earth. I'm beginning to wonder...
