unfortunately, total anonymity means there's no way for me to guarantee
you only vote once.  presentation layer anonymity would mean no one but
those with db access could see who voted on what (and even then it would
require some work).  i think in the end though there's no real way to do
and provide complete anonymity.

You two totally lost me.

Here's what I think I have in the document:
-- Official voting requires a login and password.
-- When I log in, I can read the vote and the options and submit a
-- I can also see how many out of the total voters have already voted
but not who they are or *how* they voted.
-- I can go back at anytime the vote is open, login and change my vote
if I like.
-- After the close of the vote. The results are shown but not who vote
or how.

Are we on the same page? Anyone disagree with this method?
