Variations in Envelopes

While I think the worries over "sloppy handwriting" are misplaced, my concern is that our standards appear to be different for those submitting their ballots received from the State and those voting from overseas. Not all Envelope B forms require the address, signature, and date. For those ballots, there are far fewer erros that might be made. We should be working to simplify Envelope B and make it easier to submit the ballot, not more difficult.
