Why are “Legal Guardians” Allowed to Help with Absentee Ballots??

This is a serious issue. It’s one thing to need help filling out your absentee ballot form because your hands don’t work well enough for you to write or your vision is so poor that you can’t see the form.

Yet it boggles the mind that an adult who the state feels is in need of a legal guardian is at the same time deemed qualified to vote. Aren’t there any standards?  (I found this out while getting the form to request my absentee ballot, btw.  Get yours if you need one!)  I would imagine your “legal guardian” could go with you to the polls too?
