The issue is having to count the votes. I suggest using something like marbles for people to record their vote. Then simply pour the marbles into a tube with numbers marked on it for various levels. If you want to get more complex have them drop their marbles into a series of tubes with some sort of cover (so no one would know the count in advance) and then have the big reveal by removing the cover.
My love, sweet Queen and noble wife. I alone remain to bring delivery of your pain. Severed my darling, too quickly from this life. Of fires drawn and memories met, I shall hold our two hearts again in single time.
