Support equality in voting

It is undemocratic to discriminate against voters' handwriting. I am on a business trip during the upcoming election and am planning to participate via an absentee ballot. It will be unfair and unconscionable if my vote is not counted because someone deems my handwriting illegible. The Constitution upholds our right to vote and the proposed changes may abrogate those rights.
