I had to fall back on doing an encrypted ballot because I completely
failed Gnus.  No matter what I did to Gnus, it insisted on sending the
mail quoted-printable.  When I changed mm-body-charset-encoding-alist, it
still did quoted-printable.  When I explicitly tagged the body with mml to
use 8bit encoding, it inserted random control characters in the body.
There's clearly some setting that I missed, but I don't know what it is.

Sending an encrypted ballot worked fine.

Probably part of the problem is that I haven't yet figured out the correct
way to do PGP/MIME in Gnus (mostly because I haven't looked very hard).
