Soldiers from Kansas who are overseas won't be able to vote using the internet. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says the state is happy to accept ballots by other means.
Kobach says the issue has been in the news recently because of a study carried out by the non-partisan Verified Voting Foundation. It suggests that overseas and military online voting is at risk because several states' internet voting systems are vulnerable to being hacked.
Study Shows Military Voting at Risk
A recent study performed by the non-partisan Verified Voting Foundation suggests that overseas and military online voting is at risk because of computer vulnerabilities. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says that soldiers based in Kansas would not be affected by those kinds of problems.
Kobach says military members are given every opportunity to vote by either e-mailing a .pdf document of the ballot, faxing a completed ballot, or placing a completed ballot in the mail.
