We are out of town and voted absentee in the August election. It would be outrageous for our votes not to be counted because of alleged fraud, which has led to lawsuits seeking to throw out the ballots.
Absentee voting is in the same voting rights category as early and Election Day voting — open to everyone and constitutionally protected.
If the candidates want to pay for reviewing the signature on every vote, have at it. But seeking to throw out all absentee votes is an affront to the voting public and amounts to disenfranchisement. This is especially true in regard to an August election when so many voters are on vacation.
