Honestly, just forget it, paper is much more simple, secret. Computer
might be handy for counting though.
Recently for an AGM, we used the just grep -c to count votes.
It was the type "pick 6 out of 8 candidates".
While the ballots were opened and read, we were just typing stuff like
134578 for each ballot, into a text file.
