FVAP Research Indicates Active Duty Service Members More Likely to Vote Following Use of DoD Resources

Alexandria, Va. - Research recently released by the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) suggests that the tools and resources found on the FVAP website facilitate registration and participation of military voters covered by the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA).

FVAP first reported a statistically significant positive relationship between DoD-resource usage and voting propensity in its 2012 Post-Election Report to Congress. Additional analysis led to the release of a supplemental research note explaining the influence of the various DoD voting assistance resources such as the FVAP.gov website, Installation Voter Assistance Offices and Unit Voting Assistance Officers.

The research note details consideration given to other potential influencing factors as well as the methodology used. You can find it at www.fvap.gov/info/reports-surveys/search-reports-surveys/general-research-reports  (search using the keywords "research note").
