I have a photography blog - and in a monthly post i feature different images for different photographers - around 50+ pic and I ask the users to vote for their favorite picture.

It is turning out hard - since it is really hard to make up mind about one picture - so instead, i'd like to implement a polling system that is pretty much like google's +1

Each image will have a +1 button near it - if you like the pic, you click +1 - you can like many pics.

There is no social media interactions going in the background - like no real submission of photos to google+1 to avoid spamming users.. but it is just the idea.

I do not want to use regular poll with a checkbox.

Is there any plugin that does something close to this? any feedback or idea on how to go around coding it?

Thanks in advance for the help

Take a look at this tutorial http://bavotasan.com/2009/simple-voting-for-wordpress-with-php-and-jquery/ and its follow up http://bavotasan.com/2011/a-better-voting-system-for-wordpress/

which shows a simple implementation of a vote like system.
