It's written in Perl 5, which has some really cool features that allowed
me to write the program such that the number of candidates and the number
of ballots is only limited by the memory of the computer you run it on.
The user interface isn't great, but Perl consultants are all over the
place, and I can recommend several who would be quite capable of sticking
whatever user interface you want on it.  The program is freeware, which
means you are free to copy and modify it, but if you redistribute it with
changes, the new version must also be freeware.

I also have a web page that uses the program, so you don't even need to
install it on your machine to try it out:
