*Doug MacGinnitie Launches Military Voting Solutions Tour; Expands Team*
  In honor of our military veterans and active duty service personnel -
Today, Doug MacGinnitie, republican candidate for Secretary of State
announced a "Solutions Tour" to help solve the problem of inadequate ballot
access for our deployed solders. This tour is a follow up to MacGinnitie
forming a Military Voting Advisory Committee (MVAC) last month. The MVAC is
tasked with finding and developing a plan to make voting for active military
and overseas personnel easy and efficient.

Doug and members of his MVAC will make visits in the coming months to the
Augusta, Columbus, Savannah, and Warner Robins areas meeting with military
personnel and local election officials to discuss solutions.

"Ensuring the American solder's right to vote is a top priority of mine,"
said MacGinnitie. "The committee and I are taking this pledge seriously and
will not let them down."

MacGinnitie also welcomed new additions to his advisory committee. "We're
glad to be growing our team with individuals who are at the forefront of
this issue and are passionate about military and deployment voting. These
military and civilian experts have been working on this issue for decades -
I'm proud to be working with them."

Joining the team is:

*Gary Smith, a resident of Forsyth County and board member of Operation
BRAVO, a non-profit focused on electronic alternatives to by-mail paper
ballots for deployed solders.

Colonel John M. Kidd, USA (Ret.), former Garrison Commander, Fort Stewart.

Captain Samuel F. Wright, Esq., JAGC, USN (Ret.), attorney specializing in
military and federal election law.*

"I am honored and excited to be a part of this important effort. I know
Doug is fully committed to Georgia leading the nation as an example on how
to improve military and deployment voting and I look forward to helping
however I can," said Col. Kidd.

Other members of MacGinnitie's MVAC include:

*Brad Carver, Esq., Hall Booth Smith & Slover, P.C.
Brigadier General Walter C. Corish, Jr., GAANG, Ret.
Major General (Ret.) Bruce W. MacLane, USAF
Lieutenant Colonel Oz Hill, USA, Ret.
Jim Lester III, retired CIO AFLAC, former chairman Georgia Technology
