Hmm.  Looking over the previous votes... none of the winners even
managed to get over 50% of the vote much less 60... I think
it would be very hard perhaps impossible...

In the baseball hall of fame they do it by having people select 10 names 
on a ballot... and if 75% of the ballots have the same name... that name 
gets in... the players don't compete against other...

But really I think the only problem with last time was the lack of 
votes... making the hall of fame every three years might perhaps make 
the whole thing a little more special than something on the RACCie 
ballot every year...
