Heroes Vote Initiative
www.heroesvote.org
The Heroes Vote Initiative is a non-partisan program of the Military Voter Protection Project and The Legacy Foundation. Working with local military and veterans groups, as well as state and local election officials, our goal is to motivate military voter participation and provide assistance to those members who need it. It is time for our men and women in uniform to have their voices heard on Election Day.


Military Voter Protection Project (The Legacy Foundation)
www.mvpproject.org
The right to vote is one of the most fundamental rights of American democracy. It has been defended for well over 200 years by the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. Yet, when it comes to their right to vote—our military members’ right to choose the next Commander in Chief or their elected representatives—their voices have long been silenced by an electoral process that has failed them. That silence was most evident in the 2008 election when thousands of absentee military ballots were never received by the military voter or received after the election. The Legacy Foundation’s MVP Project is here to defend our military members’ right to vote and to provide them with the very right that they defend.


Overseas Vote Foundation

Overseas Vote Foundation is dedicated to doing one thing well: helping overseas American citizens and uniformed services voters register faster, more easily and accurately than ever before. 


United States Election Assistance Commission
http://www.eac.gov/
The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) was established by the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA). EAC is an independent, bipartisan commission charged with developing guidance to meet HAVA requirements, adopting voluntary voting system guidelines, and serving as a national clearinghouse of information on election administration.
