Doesnt it seem strange that the ballots go to someone who is on the list?

That is very strange. Imagine if the 2016 presidential election were counted by the (then) current president and CC'd to the Secretary of State for accounting purposes. Or you could reverse (as in political parties) it if you like.

Now imagine trying to get the incumbent of your local election to change how the voting is done.

Can you limit it to one person, one vote?
If I have six e-mail addresses, can I vote six times?
Does SM have a way to limit it to specific addresses and one vote per address?

Q1: How large is the voting pool?
Q2: Could it be done the same way as when I get a proxy vote in the mail?
Everyone gets, via US post office, a ballot with the choices.
There's a postage paid envelope included for the ballot to be returned to a mailbox, not a person.
It's clearly stated "Vote For Not More Than One Person" per position.
Ballot will be invalidated if photocopied or otherwise altered.
One ballot per envelope, or every ballot in envelope is voided.
A custom made stamp (a la letterboxing stamp) will be on every ballot to avoid reproduction.

good point. Though if all the sudden there were 25 votes it would look suspicious....there are usually only a handful of voters anyway. Its just gotta be a way that there is no possible tampering. (enough of that in the real world)

If not survey monkey, I think I may insist on in person voting....come to a meeting, fill out a form and put it in a hat and then be counted! Boom done! Old school sometimes is the better way to go.
