opposite of secret ballot


Senior Member
What is the opposite of 'secret ballot'?

I guess their are different ways of taking votes without the votes being secret (signing, raising hands). Is there an umbrella term that covers all the possibilities?

I have come up with
a. unsecret vote (and my spell-checker does not like that)
b. non-secret vote

I do not know if they work?

Many Thanks.

    I think I'd say an open vote or a public vote: 'open' is suitable even for a small business meeting that couldn't be called public.
