NEW RULES PASSED REGARDING OVERSEAS MILITARY VOTING
Please see attached article regarding Overseas
Military Voting. I am pleased this legislation passed in the House of
This article was written by another newspaper/journalist. (Credited below the article) It is very newsworthy and I hope something can be in our local paper.

Alabama House of Representatives Passes Military and Overseas
Secretary of State Beth Chapman and the
Military and Overseas Voting Task Force are one step closer to making
electronic voting for overseas voters a reality. The Alabama House of
Representatives voted 96-0 in support of House Bill 30, which will
further the effort to make Alabama one of the first states in the nation
to implement an innovative process for military and overseas voters to
vote more efficiently and effectively.
House Bill 30, the Task Force legislation, will give military and overseas voters four ways to obtain a ballot other than the US Postal Service. These other methods include: commercial carriers such as UPS and Fed Ex, a secure fax line, email, and secure electronic transmission. The bill will also authorize overseas voters to return their ballots using those same means except through electronic transmission.
“We are definitely thrilled with the progress that the bill made today. We are hopeful that this level of progress will continue,” Chapman said. “The Military and Overseas Voting Task Force worked extremely hard and has found a champion in Representative Jimmy Martin who understood how essential it was to pass this vital legislation for our men and women in uniform,” she continued. “I am grateful for the support of Representative Martin, the Task Force, and the House of Representatives on this most important issue.”
“The thousands of soldiers who will be deployed from our state before the 2010 General Election and those already overseas should know there are many individuals in Alabama who are working hard to get them a more efficient and effective way to vote.”
Chapman says that the Senate will hopefully take up the bill shortly. “We are optimistic that this progress will continue and that this effort will be realized for our soldiers and overseas voters this year.”

GUIN WET/DRY ELECTION by J. Mays
GUIN - By a huge margin ( Yes 617 - No 388 ) the Town of Guin has voted to become one of Alabama's new "Wet" towns under the new law allowing town's with a population of 1000 or more to hold municipal option elections to determine the legal sale of alcoholic beverages inside the city limits.
Earlier this year the cities of Hamilton and Winfield rejected the votes with Winfield staying dry by only 5 votes.
Guin will be the first town in Marion County to allow the sales of alcoholic beverages. This could prove beneficial to the town since it announced earlier this year a new Holiday Inn Express to be constructed on the cities property on I-22 soon.
