        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
 always  

         mailx -s 'My vote' foo@vote.debian.org < ballot.asc

        Frankly, if would seem that a DD ought o be able to deliver RFC
 compliant mails to vote.d.o.
