Here are the number of times the "Print my ballot" button was pushed
on the on-line ballot last week, day by day:

   9 Apr 18
  17 Apr 19
  20 Apr 20
  18 Apr 21
 609 Apr 22
 345 Apr 23
  68 Apr 24
  19 Apr 25

Just for fun, I extracted all write-in names and made a popularity list.
Since many testers tried several times, using the same names, I have
only used the last ballot from each site (one IP number - one vote ;-)
Surprisingly many have entered real names, instead of the "sdfkjhkjsd"
I tend to choose.

30 Me | me | ME
20 test | TEST | Test
12 Linus Torvalds
11 mickey mouse | Mickey Mouse | MICKEY MOUSE
 5 Bob | bob | BOB
 5 John Doe | john doe
 5 Noah Brimhall
 4 BILL GATES | Bill Gates
 4 Donald Duck | donald duck
 4 joe blow | Joe Blow | JOE BLOW
 3 myself
 3 nobody | Nobody
 3 Ralph Nader
 3 smith | Smith
 2 Ann Butler
 2 asdf
