Comments including support or alternatives are welcome.

As you asked for a bit of a straw poll, I would support a move toward
secret ballots in all votes.

I've always felt slightly awkward about having my ballots be public. Not
enough to effect or suppress my vote. But I can imagine that it is
enough to stop other people from voting their mind. I would expect that
a secret ballot would encourage a few more project members to vote and
that's a good thing.

If we trust our secret ballot mechanism enough for the DPL elections, I
trust it for other GRs.
