A potentially trivial change would be to keep the process the same, but
run through the wiki---i.e. use a wiki page as the venue for nominators
to log in and update/edit.  Freeze the page after a certain date, and
now there's an archived copy of the process.  Anyone interested in
real-time updates can simply log in and "follow" the page, others can
visit the page and check the results as they see fit.

Note, this is conceptually the same process for nomination and voting,
but it is collated via the wiki instead of email.  This also doesn't
involve additional work to create an automated system.

just a few thoughts from an interested lurker...
