Troops without Votes?

I find it hard to think anything more unpatriotic than not counting the votes of U.S. servicemen and women.  In my last post, one viewer said she wonders who American troops want as president.  Whoever that is, there's no question to me that all of their votes should count.

These are people who are thousands of miles from home, missing their families, working through holidays, risking their lives.  It's unthinkable that they shouldn't be able to help choose their next commander-in-chief.

I understand there are obstacles to getting this done, like challenges with the mail and difficulties verifying addresses.  Doesn't matter.  Fix it.

If any votes should count, they should be the ones of U.S. troops.
