Script for Web Voting

I'm not sure if this is the place to be or not but I'm looking for a script
to allow visitors to vote for an issue/candidate after entering a unique
password. Once the vote is cast, the password becomes invalid.

Does java do this? Where do you suggest I go to find something like this?

Thanks,

Dennis

There's a plugin for Wordpress called, oddly enough, "Democracy"
that takes polls and even sets a cookie to prevent vote stacking
among other things but all of that may be more complex than you need...

It requires saving/retrieving data/text/string from/to a file, so, this
means, it has to be a centralized system, and thus it means it has to be
done with server language. Though there are some java applets that can do
it if I recall correctly, is simpler and more efficient with some premade
ones, there are archives for that, just check in their 'vote' section or
such, at like www.perlaccess.com if your sites does CGI with Perl, or check
in google for a PHP premade ones, there are MANY for that, but is not
javascript.

For an informed answer to that question, I suggest asking in a newsgroup
that actually deals with Java; see FAQ sec 2.2.
