Limiting Voting Voting Rights

Do you realize that you may be denying your elderly parent, or relative their vote?  Their handwriting may be badly affected by osteoarthrithis, or other ailment we seniors tend to have.  I have voted in every election since 1963.  Don't take it away from me because I have arthritis & don't write as well as I used to.

George Allen used to talk about Jeffersonian Demracacy.  I've read most of the bigraphies of Jefferson.  Jeffersonian Demacracy is rule by the property class, and only they were allowed to vote and serve on juries.  Is the Governor seeking to return to Jeffersonian Democracy,  by limiting who can vote?
