More than 40,000 American military personnel have been injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, and many of these Americans are undergoing lengthy recovery and rehabilitation treatments at hospitals far from home. Many barriers exist that may prevent these Americans from registering and voting in elections. Fortunately, improvements in technology and support services can make voting more accessible for these Americans and others who face barriers to participating in the electoral process. This report outlines the scope of the problem and lays out a number of technical and policy recommendations to make voting more accessible for veterans who have been injured while serving their country.
