Pennsylvania has a naked ballot problem. For the first time in state election history, if mail voters don’t place completed ballots inside a provided “secrecy envelope” before putting them in the outer envelope, their votes won’t count.

It’s a big deal right now, because more than 2 million Pennsylvanians have signed up to vote by mail, and when you get your package of materials, this new rule is not exactly clear.

Find step-by-step instructions here, along with background on the issue.

Officials and election advocates have put out various PSAs have been put out to make sure folks remember to “dress” their ballot properly in the double envelope. We asked Billy Penn readers for their best ideas for a catchy slogan.
