While I deeply respect privacy (and demand it in certain circumstances) as a basic human right, “Open” is our first name.  Votes should have some sense of “secrecy,” but in an open project, that’s a ticklish / difficult thing to achieve the right balance of to please everybody.
I have no problem with anonymous accounts - but I want voters to have accounts linked
to OSM mapper accounts.

What abut adding to vote template

"Please use wiki account with the same name as acount used for mapping.

If for some reason this is impossible, please add link at your user pages
at OSM Wiki and in your user profile at openstreetmap.org that mentions
accounts which you operate,"


Or something similar?
