Election for Residency Status


I have two questions in reference to elections mentioned in IRS Publication 519.

1. I am looking for a sample copy of Election that we attached to Form 1040 or Form 1040X for:

A. Election to be treated as a Resident Alien; and

B. Election to treat Non-Resident spouse as a Resident Alien

2. Can we scan the Election with taxpayer's signature in PDF format and attached it to E-Filed tax return? Or does IRS want the election with actual signatures to be mailed?

Will greatly appreciate your help in this matter.
