That'd be my preference too.

Exactly.

Well, this is what I came across after some googling:

| There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of software allowing for secret ballots
| on freshmeat.  There was supposed to be http://jfreevote.hispalinux.es/ but
| this now brings up a page in spanish that seems not directly related.

| I could also find GNU.FREE at http://www.j-dom.org/h/n/BIO/HOME/ALL/26/ and
| http://sourceforge.net/projects/free/ but it seems unmaintained. 

It would probably take some significant effort to get a trusted system going.

If there was some simple solution available, I'm pretty sure someone would 
have mentioned it by now.

Same here :)
