Absentee Ballot Changes

I am distressed that our state is considering making it more difficult to vote by absentee ballot and considering disqualifying these ballots based on poor penmanship or the absence of a date.  Ms. Luca's comment is particularly persuasive and I urge you to consider it carefully.   We should be making it easier for our citizens to vote, not harder.   This rule change has the potential to disenfranchise even those who are fighting and dying for their country overseas.
