Ballots and Elections "Security"

The King County Elections folks have sent me a form to update my signature on my voter file, because the Seattle March special election is going to be entirely by postal mail. And they want to make sure that my signature is up to date, in order to verify my ballot.

Let's see. They postal mail me a form to this address, ask me to make a template signature, that I am to postal back to them, so that they can postal mail me a ballot, that I can fill out, and sign the wrapper, and post back to them. And to verify that I am really me, the registered voter, they will compare the signatures. Which they got via postal mail from the same address they sent the ballot to.


Are they really that stupid, or do they think that we are? Are we?
