Hm, its not worth doing if we're going to make it complex like this.
I think we should just drop it.  No fedmsg broadcast for votes, only
for election period opening/closing and only for election results
publication/retraction by the admin (with obviously no user
participation data included).

It is just not important enough to:

1) cause anyone any worry.
2) bother engineering a complicated "compromise" solution.

If someone wants to argue that we still try to make it happen, I'll
hear that and implement it if a consensus is formed.  (FWIW,
personally I'm still all for it).
