We're actively pursuing (and probably going to end up using) the LUV
voting system - which is an online system. They have the extra safeguard
of having a motion to accept the results of the online pole at their
AGM, which covers the case of "what happens if somebody breaks it and
really kills the results", as a poll is then taken at the AGM.

I'll be thinking about such things more after Nov 4 (the day i'm meant
to hand in my thesis) :)

Pia has done several light summaries in the past, maybe we should
continue this? That way we have detailed minutes that any legal person
can drool over in case of disaster, and we've got the fun communication
of what's been going on.
