Allow multiple votes per card

I want to add a vote or count to cards on my Trello board so that a singular user can add to the vote/count a many times as necessary on a single card. 

For instance, imagine there were a list of words, each with their own card, on the Trello board. During a conversation, every time I head the word 'dog' I want to click a card that says 'dog' so that I can count how many times it is mentioned. 

This is not the exact purpose we require the feature but it is the easiest way I can think to explain what I need. Currently all plug-ins I have encountered only allow singular votes per person or user account. 

Many thanks in advance!

@Lucy Barrett you could create the following Butler command:

2020-09-03 at 10.39 am.pngThen use the "l" (lower case L) keyboard shortcut to add the "Heard" label to the card whenever you hear that word:

This means you can operate on the cards quickly and without opening them, and will get a running tally of however many times that label was added to the card.

@Lucy Barrett  Just trying to imagine some possible solution.
A custom power up with a card button such that when a user clicks on it registers a count against the user as a shared user variable that is the count for that user for that card. Constraint is 4096 bytes for card user variable. 

Alternatively, use Butler http request in a card to an end point that collects and tabulate the user and card details and write it out to say... a Google sheet or airtable. Question would be how quickly will the data be coming in. 

Or watch for updateCard action via card button using a webhook that collects and tabulate user and card and write out user and card ids to GS

The button could be the vote button. Just need to study the action for same user click it more than once. Update : just tested ... vote and un-vote triggers the same voteOnCard action...just a matter of voted = true/false

There may be others.
