    I think this is a wonderful benefit for disabled people and I hope that disabled throughout the U.S. ask their counties if they have something similar. It is a tremendous help to us.

    Our county has set up a program for those who are disabled so that we can sign up for voting ballots for all elections that pertain to our area to be mailed to us all the time and it is a wonderful idea for those who are disabled. It means that instead of waiting in long voting lines for an hour or more, the ballot is automatically mailed to us for every election and we complete the ballot and mail it back.

    Also, but signing up for that program, it removes us from the jury pool so that we are not called for jury duty.
