Absentee Voters

I am presently 70 years old and have voted in almost every election where I lived since the time I was allowed to vote.  I lived through the Civil Rights era and apparently am still living through it.  To put roadblocks up to people who are trying to vote in trying situations, just because their signature doesn't perfectly match the one they put on a card maybe 50 years ago is a real injustice.  My husband was diagnosed with a disease that has made his hand writing almost impossible to read, but he still is prepared to vote and keeps up on the issues.  Don't take us back to the age when people were deprived of their vote because they couldn't read, and many other restrictions based on restrictions that targeted certain groups of people.  Be American's and stop acting like the Republicans that want to take away everything we middle and lower class citizens have.   Susan Blasco
