Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is cosponsoring the Counting All Military Votes Act, legislation to make Express Mail Labels available to deployed active duty military serving on our embassies, consulates, and/or in diplomatic posts. This will ensure each of their absentee votes will be successfully delivered on time by Express Mail in order to be counted.

“As the Representative of the 10th Mountain Division, the most deployed unit in the U.S. Army, our district understands that their participation in the electoral process is critical,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Our brave men and women serving in active duty overseas assignments deserve a say in our government and elected leaders. Each of their votes must be counted, and this legislation ensures expedited mailing for their absentee ballots. We are forever indebted to those who sacrifice daily while fighting for our freedom and I’m honored to advocate for our great servicemembers in Congress.”
