of Elections shall verify from the registration and other books
and records in their custody, and from any other information
obtainable, the statements contained in the applications and

provided for.

223. The Supervisors of Elections of the counties and
Baltimore City shall mail to each applicant found to be a duly
qualified voter as aforesaid one ballot, two envelopes and a
card of instructions. The applicant's name shall be written
in ink by the Supervisors of Elections upon the coupon at-
tached to the ballot, and in the case of primary elections the
ballot sent shall be that of the political party with which such
applicant is affiliated. The Supervisors of Elections shall have
a sufficient number of ballots to be sent by mail printed for
each county and the City of Baltimore. The words ''Mail
Ballot" shall be printed in large letters, in a clear space at
the top of each of such ballots. The designation of the poll-
ing place shall be left blank on the back and outside of "Mail
Ballots, " and shall be filled in by the Supervisors of Elections

Envelope" the words, "Return Envelope for election of ———, "

after which shall be added the words "Supervisors of Elections
of Baltimore City" or "Supervisors of Elections of ———
County" as the case may be.

The Supervisors of Elections shall also, before sending the
"Return Envelope" to the voter, cause it to be addressed to the
