Does the government allow the very important military personal such as Generals, Majour Generals, etc. vote?

In general elections they are allowed to vote. They do not vote in actual things that get passed by the government.

How could anyone deprive them, under the Constitution?
The USA may have dragged its feet in addressing universal suffrage (e.g 19th, 24th and 26th Amendments- apologies if I've numbered them slightly wrongly: post-Saturday memory fatigue); but there is no way someone with a vote can just be deprived of it.

US Military members are not prohibitted from voting, however, under and act proposed and passed thanks to Mr. Daschle, military members are only allowed to vote far in advance with absentee ballots. Previously, if a military member lived on a US base they were allowed to vote in the regular elections as a normal local registrant. Before (I believe) 1996, military members living abroad on US bases could still vote real time with electronic means.

Because ALL US military members are now relegated to absentee ballots, they must now vote months in advance (meaning they dont have an opportunity to find out who won the primaries, ect), with much paperwork (meaning not many will have the time or desire to complete that paperwork, and many will not vote).

In addition, during the 2000 election, many of these absentee ballots were lost or delayed, and Sen Daschle as well as many dummycrats actively fought in court to disallow ANY military absentee ballots to be counted, essentially robbing the right to vote from the entire US military (but then, the dummycrats would find that logical, as the military is overwhelmingly republican)

I beg to differ, buts that's exactly what happened in the 2000 election. 10,000 minority voters were wiped from the vote registrar illegally. Over 7000 other votes were ignored or simply not counted. Boxes of votes dissappeared during transportation.


but Im sure Colin Powell's vote would count.......


It's a grand Democracy.
