I think proxy voting is a technical term with a totally different
meaning (a proxy is someone who casts a vote on behalf of someone who
is absent but otherwise eligible for voting; this may come with or
without a mandate to vote in a particular way).

One way to avoid double-voting is to associate each vote with an
identity from an identity provider such as Facebook.  This may not be
what you want, though.

Secure online voting is really quite hard, particularly if you want
anonymity, secrecy, resistance to coercion, prevention of
double-voting, and an audit trail.
