Currently, it appears that you can't see the vote totals on nominees during the primaries if you don't have enough reputation to vote: presumably, that's because the voting widget is disabled.
It would be great to be able to see how the election is doing as a spectator. In case it isn't clear, as it stands now, voters while voting get to see vote tallies: I'm requesting people who aren't voting be given that same information. For transparency and/or idle curiosity.
I'm interested in providing the same level of information for voters and non-voters alike, but if you're interested in getting rid of the tallies for voters entirely, you'll want to see the request: Do not show the score for users during primaries.
