Rick - since time is a big issue for you, just fork out the $20 for
SurveyMonkey already (up to 1000 responses),
that's what I did when I did the member survey in 2005.
SurveyMonkey gives you tons more functionality:
Then download the results and cancel your subscription after the event.

SSL costs an extra $9.95/mo with them:

I know nothing about Helios Voting.
