You can load data from an external text file and display it.
But you can't write to an external file anywhere, directly with flash.
The type of thing you want to do would be best done with a database and some server side code. The server side code (e.g. PHP) is what does the data exchange with flash. From flash's point of view, its just like loading and sending text files. But its not really.
You may be able to find existing open source code that does what you want on the server side. Chances are you would need to customise it to your needs, in which case you would need to know how to do that (e.g. PHP/MYSQL). Or perhaps you could somehow work with an existing voting module in a Content Management System. E.g. Joomla, Drupal etc.
I was afraid of that!! I am not proficient in database construction....
