It isn't solved, but it's an indicator.

Okay, what I meant to say was - if someone is not happy with a voting
process, don't wait till the end to file a protest vote, do it before
the voting starts.

Which requires that some voter really understands that the options are wrong
and not his personal preferences are unusual.

A blank text entry field 'none of the above, other: [___________]' might help.
Ususally people are lazy and dont type into that field. But if surprisingly
many people do, it might make sense to evaluate the freetext, and see if
there is a pattern.

That again, would not help with the current vote, but maybe with the next.
