Material omissions from absentee ballots

I have been told that my penmenship is terrific however stopping people from having their vote count in a critical election based on small errors or poor signature quality is outragious. When Bush tried to find out how bad false votes occurred I beleive he only found less than 100 out of millions.  What is the purpose of your making it harder to cast a vote other than an attempt to limit voting from your opposition.  I am insulted to think that you feel we are that ignorant of what you are trying to accomplish.  You have lost my vote and I was Republican.  Leave the ballot alone.  It is the one thing that makes us special.
