Sounds like what we need is a transferable multiple vote system - see
That way, the poll-winner was voted either for or against by each person
cared about it.

This would firstly present a fun Python project writing on the on-line
voting form and results-processor (any volunteers?), and would also keep
everyone amused while they work out how the voting works and then how to
rank all the proposals, giving my inbox a welcome respite :-)


P.S. FWIW, I'm a J2 person - very elegant.
