I think it's pretty typical for the fact of voting to be public even when
the contents of the vote are secret. I wonder about number of votes cast,
though -- in the F20 name election there was a suggestion of casting zero
votes as a protest against the names, and I wouldn't be surprised if there
are other situations where the number of votes carries some meaning.

Also, you're probably on this already, but put statement about what is and
isn't fedmsg'd on the voting page.
