It was easy in the old days. All you did was sign a form to register as a Service voter and vote whenever the opportunity arose. Now you have to register annually, and if you are in the sandbox once a year then this makes life a little tricky. Therefore soldiers (and the rest) are disenfranchised. How very convenient as most tend to be just slightly right of centre. In Scotland, apparently only 2,000 or so Jocks are registered as voters. What can be done to bring pressure to bear on the MoD to rectify this situation? Any thoughts? Perhaps the Electoral Commission may have some clout? If the MoD can produce tonnes of such drivel as "Focus" etc, it can get the relevant forms to every man and woman in HM's uniform with clear instructions and a response post service. This is a disgrace.
