Politicians do it all the time. A corporation is a business, and businesses operate on contracts, and a business is allowed to make business decisions.
So you believe a contract is needed to prevent a corporation from taking advantage of taxpayers?
Well, it looks like I just got my wish. Thank you Phage, for standing by your principles (or lack thereof, at last). I disagree.
Based on this more in-depth analysis of the bill, it appears that the writers did not remove the requirement to have absentee ballots signed, but simply increased the amount of information that must be submitted to make it harder for fraudulent voting attempts to succeed.
(4) If the registrar or clerk is unable to determine the identity of the elector from information given on the application or if the application is not complete or if the oath on the application is not signed, the registrar or clerk should promptly contact the elector in writing to request the necessary additional information and a signed copy of the oath.
And, once again, you misrepresent what I have said.
If that is true, it is only true because you refuse to clearly state your beliefs.

I prefer to get legal analyses from experts.
What I keep saying is, there's a lot more in this bill than voter ID changes that have people upset, and corporations publicly expressing their disapproval and the MLB boycotting Georgia.
You are aware that a signature verification is a form of identity verification?
It is also one portion of the information on file in the registrar's office.
The people you are getting your information from are not interested in presenting facts.
The law also does away with the signature-matching system Georgia used to use to check the identities of absentee voters. Instead, voters will have to provide their Georgia driver’s license number, the number on their state identification card, or the last four digits of their Social Security number.
Why do you think a "legal analyst" can read better than you?
The change eliminates signature-matching -- a process that can be subjective at times -- as the method of confirming absentee voters' identities. Instead, if voters have a driver's license number or a state ID number, they are required to use that to verify who they are.
