A tally sheet is available. While the voting is still open the tally is a dummy one; after the vote, the final tally sheet shall be put in place. Please note that for secret ballots the md5sum on the dummy tally sheet is randomly generated, as otherwise the dummy tally sheet would leak information relating the md5 hash and the voter. Additionally, the results shall be updated after the polls close.

Please note that the ballots are received asynchronously, and the vote scripts are run just past the top of the hour. The statistics here were gathered later, so there shall often be a discrepancy between ballots received and the responses sent (namely, ballots received since the vote processing scripts were last run). Most the cases, where the acknowledgements were generated, but were not sent, are due to the ballots being signed with an expired key. Such ballots are counted, but no ack is sent, since GPG balks at encrypting to an expired key, and I tend to agree. Most of the bad ballots are due to the presence of a non printing character (usually one that displays as a space) in the ballot that confuses the parser.
