Right to vote

To the Editor:

This letter is in reply and endorsement of Sally Cook's letter regarding Australian balloting or absentee balloting in Barnet.

All people who live in Barnet are entitled to vote even if housebound, working or traveling. They pay taxes and have every right and duty to vote. People who prepare budgets, well be careful and conservative with 1,300 voters looking over their shoulders.

Experience in other towns show a much greater participation in town affairs when offered absentee ballots. It makes for good government and good sense. Thank you.
