Letters to the Editor

'Our common language'

I say "amen" to Sylvia Silberman's comment about the impossibility of reading the ballots [letter Oct. 27].

May I suggest that her dilemma could be very well solved if the ballot were printed in the accepted language of the United States? The double amount of space that is used to print the same information in Spanish could very well be used for a larger font size.

If a person is eligible to vote, then they must have surely mastered the English language, for that is one of the requirements for citizenship, isn't it?

What if we had to print in the 60-plus languages that are spoken in California? Our common language unifies us.
