Absentee ballot rules

Voting should be made as easy as possible once the identity of the voter is verified.  Voters without state IDs should be offeredd easy ways to get identiy cards.

Once someone is verified as a voter as long as the affadavit for absentee balloting can be read and the voter identified and the the choices on the ballot are identifiable, the vote should count.  

The Commonwealth was a jurisdiction noted for restricting the ballot of American citizens.  The Commonwealth must make it as easy to vote as possible.
