It’s estimated that between 1 and 7 million Americans live overseas. That’s admittedly a pretty broad range, and the lack of precise data is causing consternation at a small Defense Department office. The Federal Voting Assistance Program helps all U.S. citizens overseas, regardless of their military affiliation, to vote. But first, it has to find them. Matt Boehmer, director of the Federal Voting Assistance Program, explained FVAP’s challenges to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
Tom Temin is the host of The Federal Drive, which airs from 6-9 a.m. on 1500 AM in the Washington, DC region and online everywhere. Tom has 30 years experience in journalism, mostly in technology markets. Before coming to Federal News Radio, he was a long-serving editor-in-chief of Government Computer News and Washington Technology magazines.
