That is not accurate. The ballot is the whole text after the
XXXX CALL FOR VOTE FOR YYYYYYYYYYY
There is a portion of the ballot that you may not mangle; it is
the only part of the ballot that devotee cares about -- but you may,
and people do, send in the whole ballot. Other edit the ballot to only
contain the parts devotee cares about.
But if you email email@example.com while a vote is immanent
or in progress, you get sent the whole enchilada -- instructin text,
vote GPG key, and all.
Can you present a sample ballot for, say, DPL election 2009? It
might help to see a full ballot and compare the points of difference.
You can't get there from here.
