Secret ballots mean that the actual ballots are never published by the
secretary.  It does not mean that voters are not allowed to make their
choice public (or to claim they voted in a particular way, despite
having voted differently).  The point of a secret vote is to make sure
vote buying is ineffective, since under secret ballots the buyer is
unable to verify that the voter actually cast the ballot he or she
claimed to have cast; and that point is preserved even if some of us
publish our (real or fake, you can't tell) choices.
