Well the nice thing about "tension" is that it would measure the magnitude of active indecisiveness without revealing the actual vote count; this way you could get feedback prior to voting or considering without revealing the raw votes.

Examples:

++-- Total vote tension
100595low
1055low
5100-95low
550low
1001000high
20200medium
502030medium-high

Another phrase for "tension" would be "high interest, controversial".

Update: grammar, clarity tweaks
