warrl,

Why couldn't the signature go across the sealing flap of the second envelope - so that part is on the flap and part is not? Then if the envelope is signed before it is sealed, it would very-often (not always) be fairly apparent.

Wouldn't matter much. The old way, to sell your vote you'd sign the envelope and hand everything over (unsealed) to the person buying your vote, and they'd pay you. Your new way, you'd have to wait a moment while the person buying your vote fills out the ballot, then you'd seal and sign it, then hand it over to the buyer and he'd pay you. If the internal ballots are all the same (which they should be, so you can't identify who is voting), then the buyer could have a stack of them already filled out to speed things up.

A little more tedious, but not much.
