State and federal officials are pressing for improvement in getting military votes counted this election cycle after none of the 560 registered voters in 12 Fort Riley precincts cast ballots in the August primary.

Officials aren't sure how that happened, but say a number of factors including the military's transient nature could have played a part.

Election officials say making it easier to vote, such as increasing use of the Internet, would improve access and reduce the time it takes for soldiers to get ballots anywhere.
