This comment should be disqualified

A few things about this measure are patently ridiculous:

1. Disqualified from voting for not including the year in the date?  There is no rational justification why a ballot for a particular election along with a postmark should be disqualified because of a sloppy date signature.

2. Name derivatives not allowed?  As long as there is a reasonable first name (or first initial) and last name match, the vote should not be discarded.
