Just for comparison purposes:

- a record of whether an individual voted must be kept to prevent an
individual voting multiple times.  All current and past fedora election
software has had this information and kept it private.
- a record of who voted for what has been kept since this feature was
implemented: fedorahosted.org/elections/ticket/30 in 2009.  All election
software that recorded this information has kept the information private.
