In support of Margaret Luca's comment

Margaret Luca's comment makes sense to me: the standards should be the same for anyone qualified to submit an absentee vote.  Any change that increases the chance that a vote will be disqualified because of a failure to repeat available information or write one's name in an unusual way (since many people are used to using variations of their names) seems likely to deprive people of their right to vote for no good reason.
