***image1***The Air Force Voting Assistance Program in the KMC is up and running. Unit Voting Assistance Officers at all levels and trained voting counselors are contacting military and civilian employees in every KMC Air Force organization. People can leave a message for me, Maj. Brad Hamant, the Installation Voting Assistance Officer, or Maj. Bill Kennedy at 480-VOTE to find out about your representative or to ask a question about the program. Check this spot and the Airmen Votes Web site at http://www.
afpc.randolph.af.mil/AirmenVotes weekly for voting questions and answers.
Q: When should I give up waiting for my absentee ballot to arrive?
A: Many states have sent absentee ballots to their voters already, but some have not. The last of them should hit the mail this week. If you haven’t received it by Oct. 15, see your Voting Counselor for a Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot. You can use it to vote for any office at any level. Refer to your hometown newspaper or county election official’s Web site for races and candidates. Always mark and return your official ballot when you receive it, even if you’ve already sent a FWAB.
