I really can't give you a good money quote. You should really read it all: EXCLUSIVE: Illinois Elections Officials Caught Lying About Military Ballots - Big Government But it's pretty obvious Illinois has a vested interest in disinfranchizing military voters.

It's obvious Democrats don't want military votes counted, and this is not the only state where this is happening.
