    That's the kicker in dealing with voice voting.  It has technology assumptions that aren't valid today.  Publishing is work, so don't publish in real-time.  Collating and bookkeeping is a chore, so don't record who voted on what (absent 1/5th interest to the contrary).  I have to believe that Ben Franklin would've wanted us to update our Constitution to accomodate what's possible with modern technology.
