By hidden, we simply mean that who voted for what and how many votes each book received is not known until after the voting period ends. For example, look at the December vote. You see that 4 people voted for The Scarlet Letter, 7 for The Iliad, 13 for A Christmas Carol, etc. Those results were not visible until the voting ended. Moreover, by clicking on the numbers (ex: the "4" in the votes column for The Scarlet Letter), the screen is replaced by one that tells you who voted for what. That's the "public" aspect of the hidden but public that The Terminator was speaking of. Naturally, who voted for what is a mystery until after the poll closes.
