Abstract : The objective of our voting assistance program assessment is to continue our ongoing evaluation of voting assistance to Service members and report as required on risks to program objectives, or violations of law, policy, or regulation, so public officials and those charged with governance can take appropriate action. We will do this by assessing: Military Services Voting Assistance programs, and the portion of Federal Voting Assistance Program Office responsibilities that fall within the DoD for compliance and effectiveness in accordance with the requirements set forth in section 1566, title 10, United States Code, (10 U.S.C. 1566 (c) (3), [2006]) Voting assistance; compliance assessments; assistance. This statute requires the DoD Inspector General (IG) to: (3) Not later than March 31 each year, the Inspector General of the Department of Defense shall submit to Congress a report on (A) the effectiveness during the preceding calendar year of voting assistance programs; and (B) the level of compliance during the preceding calendar year with voting assistance programs of each of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. The Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps did have functioning Voting Assistance Programs, had persons assigned to appropriate Voting Assistance Program duties, conducted regular oversight of the Voting Assistance Programs, identified deficiencies and areas for improvement, and implemented corrective actions. Therefore, the DoD Office of Inspector General concurs with the Service inspectors general determinations that their respective Service complied with Voting Assistance Programs and regulations.
