What devotee accepts is a proper ascii armored GPG signed mail
(RFC 2440), or PGP/MIME, which is RFC 3156.
Sending in a non PGP/MIME message which is magled by the MTA
has never been acceptable. If you can't use a decent MUA, then there is
mailx -s 'My vote' firstname.lastname@example.org < ballot.asc
Frankly, if would seem that a DD ought o be able to deliver RFC
compliant mails to vote.d.o.
