Examining the results in detail

Once voting is complete, a CSV file containg details of all votes cast is available, and can be issued to anyone querying the ballot. A sample is shown here.

Receipt Who is your favourite James Bond actor? Who are your favourite 3 Bond villains? What are your 5 favourite Bond films, in order of preference?
3CCT Roger Moore Dr. Julius No, Hugo Drax, Renard License to Kill, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Live and Let Die, Thunderball, Diamonds Are Forever
NVVS Nigel Farage Count Herman Achille Van Rompuy The World is Not Enough, Casino Royale (1967), The Spy Who Loved Me, Octopussy, Quantum of Solace
T7V3 Roger Moore Hugo Drax, Dr. Julius No, Dr. Kananga/Mr. Big Goldfinger, Die Another Day, Diamonds Are Forever, From Russia With Love, Dr. No

It is imprortant to stress that the CSV file gives NO indication whatsoever as to voter identity, unless they choose to reveal themselves.
