I don't know if this would be called flimsy paper. Perhaps non-archival paper and minimum standards for ink would be closer.

I ate a restaurant once where the cash register had an interesting error in the restaurant's favor. I saved the receipt, intending to write a nasty-gram to chain's corporate HQ, but noticed about 6 months later that the ink had disappeared.

We might want to write something about how long the ballot will be legible.
