Absentee Ballot

Dear Sir/Ma'm:

Just a quick comment regarding the absentee ballot rule change.  It appears that you're making this a political issue when you want to write into law language regarding the signature on an absentee ballot ballot.  I have had both of my wrists crushed in a bad accident and I can hardly sign my name as it is.  Does this mean you're going to have to spend my tax dollars on a signature expert to review all of the questionable signatures?  The idea of the proposed rule is frivolous and in my mind goes against the Constitution of the United States and is a waste of tax payer money and just a plain ole waste of resources now that we're all having to respond too. 

I am against this type of rule where someone would throw out a ballot just because someone thinks it's not a good signature.

Please focus on the upkeep and maintenance of my beautiful state and it's residents.


Best Regards,

Jeff Cody
