I have no idea how this will play out in terms of electing people I like, regardless, this is still good news:
The Department of Veterans Affairs said Monday that it would no longer ban voter registration drives among veterans living at federally run nursing homes, shelters for the homeless and rehabilitation centers across the country.
In May, the department said such drives would violate the prohibition on political activity by federal employees and would be disruptive.
The reversal came after months of pressure from state election officials, voting rights groups and federal lawmakers who said that such drives made it easier for veterans to take part in the political process.
The previous rule made no sense (at least what I understood of it made no sense- there may have been aspects I was unaware of), as it seems to me that the general rule should be to make things EASIER for people to vote should they so desire.
