To say that people's signatures are not qualifying because they were too high is pure ignorance with a twist of negativity that we don't need.
Most everyone is going to sign their name the same either way, high or not. It's not like being drunk.
The fact is that a lot of people don't sign their name like it is on the voter records. Nothing to do with being high.
I like the informational aspect of telling people they need to sign like on the voter records. That is very useful. But the 'too high to sign right' is simply from someone who is either very ignorant, or wants to be negative about people who use cannabis. Or a stupid joke. Take your pick.
All true. When I was a kid, we applied for passports. I was only 8. My dad sat me down to sign the docs and then was very disappointed because I signed just my middle initial rather than my full middle name, so we had to redo the application. My mom stepped in and told me to always sign my full name on any document, that way I wouldn't forget and sign it wrong.
That said, my first name is "Michael." I lever liked that name much and have signed most legal documents in my adult life with the name I go by, "mike." My credit accounts show "mike" as an alias. And sometimes I sign just "M" with no middle name and the surname signed. Sometimes, when depositing checks into my bank account, I just sign with a scribbled "M.-.-.-S". I've never had an issue with that either.
So I can see where some folks aren't recognizing the need for a petition signature to match some standard. And many might not even know if their full name is on their Voter ID or just a middle initial or nothing pertaining to a middle name at all.
I think a lot of this comes down to people trying to disqualify votes. Republicans know that the more votes = the worst outcome for them. So they do anything possible to disqualify voters.
