Restrictions On Absentee Ballots
What is the Legislature up to? I have spent most of my life in the service of the United States abroad, and have depended upon the availability and ease of use of absentee ballots to do my duty as a citizen to register my political opinions. My signature -- due in part to having had to sign many thousands of official documents over the years -- has become difficult to read. Do you mean to tell me that my furture ballots might be thrown out because my signature is difficult to read? What arrogant nonsense! This notion must be scrapped now. Leave the ballot alone, except to ease access and use so that more voters can vote, as the American Way demands.
