I setup an example for how a wiki voting system could work here:

My main issue with email only voting is that it is hard to manage who 
voted & what there vote was with out digging a whole lot.

Plus with MoinMoin it is possible to use ACL to control who can write 
to the page, and is possible to let someone vote with out having to 
edit the page, though need to write a special action/macro to handle 

I personally would like to see voting done in email & then finalized on 
the wiki page so it is easy for anyone to see what is going on, what 
has been voted on and what is currently open for votes.
