MARCIA FUDGE: It is just disheartening to me that at this time when people are dealing with so much, when they've lost their jobs, when they can't get their unemployment insurance, when their kids are hungry, and they don't know if they can go to school that we are playing these games, instead of making it easy for people to go to the polls. And now people are wondering if they go to the polls, if they vote by mail, if their vote will even count.

I don't know any handwriting experts that work at these boards of elections. My signature is different now than it was at 18 when I first registered to vote. It's not going to be an exact match. So they play all of these games.
