Military and overseas civilian voters have lost a great champion and hero.
Former Senator John Warner (R, VA) died on May 25 in northern Virginia at the age of 94. President Biden lauded his "principled stances" on important issues facing our nation during his five terms in the US Senate from 1979 until 2009. Former Senator Warner also served as Secretary of the Navy between 1972 and 1974.
In 1988, Senator Warner led the effort to approve the Uniformed and Overseas Civilian Absentee Voter Act P.L.99-4120 (UOCAVA), which was signed into law by President Reagan on August 28 of that year.
