Yes, but the sample is still just 1. (Also I don't know the rationale for
that, so it's hard to judge it - it could have been fully intentional, it
could have been some sort of a CYA measure that was grandfathered in.)
Anyway. Let's take any other election as an example. What do we do with
people who intensely dislike the option X in an election and takes each vote
to the contrary as an insulting statement from those voters, or just takes
it personally? One could make the argument that keeping the tally sheet
obfuscated is good for any election, because we want to avoid fussing over
In the end, does it really avoid people fussing over things, or does it
really just obfuscate the fussing, from 'evil people A,B,C voted against me!'
to 'three evil people voted against me!'?
