Absentee voting rights

As a veteran I am appallled that voting rights could be taken away based on someones subjective judgement on penmenship. There has been no voter fraud in Virginia that warrants this heavy handed and unwarrnted "crackdown". The proposed changes seem less like protecting Virginia's voter and more like finding a way to suppress a cetain segments voting rights. If the proposed changes are approved will medical prescriptions become invalidated for the same reason? This foolishness needs to end. Do not make any changes to the absentee voting process.
