    ballot vs vote

    Which of the 4 options in the parenthesis is correct. Thank you.

    When we will go on our graduation trip should be decided by the graduating students (A. by ballot B. by a ballot C. by vote D. by voting).

    Re: ballot vs vote

    I would say,
    The date for our graduation trip should be decided by a vote.

    Take a look at the following ngram.
