State Representative Janel Brandtjen, Chair of the Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections, along with several military veterans, have petitioned the courts to verify active military status for our brave men and women in uniform. The move comes after Brandtjen received three absentee military ballots with invented names at her home last week. 

“Now that we know just how easy it is to illegally acquire military ballots, I’m asking the courts to confirm active military status until we can close these loopholes. We all want to protect our military members from having their valor stolen in such a despicable fashion,” Brandtjen said. “Of course we will make sure every legitimate military ballot is counted, and we will not let bad actors steal their votes,” Brandtjen added.

Rep Brandtjen remains optimistic that the courts will act swiftly to verify active military status.
