Hello.

"These voting slips are non-show-through sheets of paper."

Does this sound natural? Could you rephrase it, please?

Hi,

These voting slips are non-show-through sheets of paper."

Does this sound natural? Not very.

Could you rephrase it, please? You can't see through these voting slips. (or ballots.)

Best wishes, Clive
Clive,

Thank you.

How do you describe those kinds of sheets?
"A sheet that you can't see through"?

If you must use a word, use "opaque." But "You can't see through these sheets" is pretty natural sounding.
Since most sheets are opaque, making the distinction seems redundant. What is the purpose of the sentence? Were the previous ballots see-through? Or is this a cover sheet which conceals the vote on the ballot?
Many cheap papers are not opaque, and printing can be seen through them.

Are you talking about something like what the banks use to send you your PIN? Those are called "tamper-evident laser-printed PIN mailers", but for a voting slip, this term certainly does not apply. But why the voting slip needs to be "non-show-through"? Don't you mark on the slip in a booth and then put it inside the ballot box immediately?
Thank you, all.
I'm talking about the condition of the sheet. It doesn't matter whether or not it is a voting slip.
