Are we no longer a democracy?
I travel extensively with my job and on several occasions have had to file an absentee ballot. I believe it is my civic duty to vote and have made a point of watching all debates and making myself well-informed of the issues and candidates so that I can make an informed choice when casting my ballot. Now, to find out that my ballot could be disqualified as a result of something as minor as poor penmanship is truly disturbing. The last time I checked, this country and state were are still a democracy. We should be looking at ways to increase voter turnout and accessibility to the vote, not finding ways to prevent voting. What are you people thinking? I will not cast a vote for anyone associated with trying to destroy the democracy I so value.
