One way to do it is to have voters submit a list of their top 5 picks, and score each logo by the number of lists on which they appear.
Another way is to give everyone 5 voting tokens that they can assign to logos. We then count the number of tokens assigned to each logo.
If there's a clear winner - i.e. a logo with 2x the next best logo - we can stop there. If not, we can do another round of voting on only the top N logos.
