absenteed ballots

Absentee voting is part of our system.  If you truly are concerned about voter participation, regardless of whether or not the citizens vote for YOUR chosen candidate, you will leave the regulations alone.  When I go to vote, there are supposed to be impartial observers present.  There always have been.  To begin to selectively eliminate absentees, due to poor handwriting, for example,  is blatantly wrong.  People must have the option  to vote in this manner.  If you change the rules, you are changing outcomes.  Keep your hands off absentee ballots.
