also a colored envelope marked “ Ballot,” in which the ballot is to be sealed.
The ballot and certificate on the envelope must be executed by the officer who has been authorized
to cast the vote. A list o f the designated voters was attached to m y circular above mentioned. In order
that th e ballot may be secret, the name o f the bank and o f the voting officer should not be w ritten on
