“The program covers national, state and local election voting,” said Maj. John Ware, 355th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Maintenance Operations officer. “We provide the forms and we help fill them out, we have guidance for each state on their process, so we are able to assist in all those areas.”

Each unit is responsible for assisting Airmen in establishing voting eligibility. If a Desert Lightning Team member is unable to register, his or her unit voting officer can assist them in the application process.

“We are not here to push political views,” Ware said. “We are simply here to assist you acquire the ability to vote.”

The voting office will have a booth at the Base Exchange June 30 – July 3 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to provide absentee ballots and voter information to interested parties.
