Re: Secret votes HOWTO

Anton Zinoviev:

Standard procedure to do secret votes in other communities where secret
electronic votes[1] have been wished has been for each voter to supply
their own secret password (any alphanumeric string), which was then
published along with the vote. Those wishing to be non-anonymous
usually supplied their name and address as password.

The vote counting software throws away all information except the vote
and the password once the origin of the vote has been checked.
