The first use I ever heard of was Technorati doing a distributed poll  
during the last US election.  Tantek mentioned it here [http:// 
tantek.com/log/2004/11.html#d01t2339]. It is, of course, dead now.

And on the topic of vote-links vs. relnofollow, notice that vote- 
links are actually older than relNoFollow. :D
