I would recommend using a Google form (votes are automatically filed in 
a shared Google Docs spreadsheet, with stats visible etc).  I find it 
much more tied into our infrastructure (since we all use google docs 
already) than external ones like surveymonkey.

However it sounds like you are way past that, so I'd ask that we use 
this for the next poll. Ping me if you are interested.
