Absentee Voting Material Requirements
Please keep the absentee ballot voting procedures as simple as possible for those older people and people with disabilities that otherwise would not be able to exercise their right to vote. These citizens often have difficulty signing their names clearly and even so often sign more easily readable signatures than those of physicians whose signatures are often illegible but still accepted on prescriptions, etc. AS the Sages say, "Do not put a stumbling block in the path of a blind person." Likewise, please look for ways to include our elderly and phsycially challenged voters in the process and don't put a stumbling block of signature clarity in their path.
