You could set up a small kiosk system where the voters could enter their own
data. A few laptops set up on a table would do it. If they're networked
together (wired or wireless), you could set up a centralized database that
would keep track of all votes and other info; if they aren't networked
together each laptop would keep it's own data that would need to be
reconciled at the end of the day. Probably take a few hours to work up a
basic system. Of course, I'm a software developer, so I naturally think of
a software solution.
If there is some interest in something like this, I'd be happy to work up a
prototype. It would give me something LBC-related to do when it's cloudy<g>
For a non-electronic solution, how about tallying the votes as they come in
(assuming you started counting at the end of the voting period)
