Signature on Absentee Ballots

Please do not make it more difficult for voters to cast their ballots and  allow them to be counted.  As a retired public school teacher I have witnessed poor penmanship on both the elementary and high school levels.  No matter how conscientiously the students attempted to print and use cursive to write their names it sometimes was hard to understand.   I am asking that you use both the printed and cursive  signatures so that there will be no misunderstanding about who signed the ballot.
