4. Wow, your system is difficult!
The absentee ballot comes with three envelopes -- one plain (the secrecy envelope), one with an affidavit, or oath, printed on the outside, and one plain envelope, preaddressed (the outer envelope). Once the voter casts the ballot, the procedure is as follows:

* Seal the ballot in the plain envelope
* Place the plain envelope inside the accompanying affidavit envelope
* Seal the affidavit envelope and complete the affidavit that is on the outside of the envelope
* Sign the affidavit and have the signature witnessed by either a notary public or two witnesses 18 years of age or older
* Place the affidavit envelope and a COPY of voter identification inside the outer envelope
* Remember to place a copy of your I.D. (NOT THE ORIGINAL) inside the outer envelope

WITNESSES OR NOTARIZATION
An absentee ballot cannot be counted unless the affidavit is notarized or has the signatures of two witnesses.

In Florida we use two envelopes and you have to sign your name across the flap after you seal the final envelope. Fairly simple.
