The power to explain your vote

Attached to the vote, is a comment. This can be used by voters to explain their vote, and make sure it isn't interpreted in creative ways.

The comment space can also be used to comment publicly on the voting process itself. Naturally it can contain a URL, or several. Within a comment, voters may organize a vote-within-a-vote, adding this up is a trivial data-processing matter which can be performed by any voter (sede can be used for this). Comments are also "undefined bit strings".

The length of the comment is bound to a maximum, set by the vote administration.

Besides the obvious, the comment is a security feature, which prevents vote-spoofing of votes which are expected to yield a predictable content. It makes your vote unique in unpredictable ways.
