Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Concerned about overseas and military voters? According to the Military Times, "Continued problems and the high cost of fixing them make it unlikely service members outside the U.S. will be voting by electronic ballot in 2008, according to a new congressional report.

The report also says that without some guidance from the Election Assistance Commission, which has been busy with other projects - including problems with electronic voting machines - electronic voting may not be available to service members abroad in time for the 2010 elections either, as mandated by Congress in last year's defense authorization bill."...
