Voter Fraud Watch: What Happened to Military Ballots in the 2012 Election?

Did the votes of military members wind up being suppressed in last week's election?

Fox and Friends spoke this morning with former Justice Department official Hans Von Spakovsky, who co-authored the book, Who's Counting? to find out more about the situation.

He explained that the issues that went on with military ballots stem from the military failing to heed recommendations to implement a state-of-the-art mail forwarding system.

Spakovsky said this may have resulted in delays with absentee ballots getting to service members in time.

The end result was low turnout by military voters, but Spakovsky also blamed that on an overall lack of enthusiasm for the candidates, with neither having military experience.
