Voting is a right

I cannot believe what Jason Smith authored in his Aug. 12 Standard Democrat column. He stated that it is unconstitutional to vote by mail. Voting is a constitutional right. There is nothing in the constitution which says voting by mail is illegal. All Americans should be able to safely cast their vote by whatever means are available. I think Jason Smithís comments is nothing more than an act of voter suppression. He is obviously afraid of the election results.

Thanks for speaking out. Not sure if you just read the headline or Smithís full column, but he did not say itís unconstitutional to vote by mail. He said the policy being used by left-leaning states across the country in universal mail-in balloting is unconstitutional. Ö Perhaps we could have used a better headline, too.
