Absentee ballot

My Voter Card has my first name, maiden name and last name. My VA Driver's License has my

first name, middle name and last name. My bank card has my first name, middle initial and last name. (How should I sign my name? Would it be acceptable if I signed an 'X' as my signature, just in case my

handwriting is sloppy)?

My point is that our current Governer wants to limit the ability of VA citizens to have full acces to the ballot box by constricting our use of absentee ballots through sham procedures on certifying their authenticiity.

Shouldn't we make it easier to cast a vote rather than making it more difficult? After all, voting should be a right for all citizens regardless of party affiliation. Let's NOT make it legal to pick and choose what ballots to throw out.
