and doing it that way should also be independently auditable, assuming
that each ballot-option gets its own account where the coins are
spent, and that coins cannot be forged.  (and both of these seem very
reasonable to assume.)

The only remaining problem then would be generating and distributing
the tokens, and ensuring that whoever is generating them is not making
extra for themselves.  But those problems are probably inherent to all
other systems as well, and probably solvable by making sure that
process is very transparent.
