I can't get these voting buttons to work for the life of me, the javascript just won't run and i can't figure out why 

I have it working fine on my site but it just won't run on this, i must be missing something, please let me know if you can find the problem

thanks :)

You have multiple javascript framework and use try to use the $ for jQuery.
Use jQuery instead

For example, replace :

$(".vote") by jQuery("vote")

Your code must be right:
$(".vote") and whatever follow after.
Try put your 'vote' class in double quotes in your HTML code and everything should work fine.
If it doesn't, try to remove scriptaculous and leave jQuery. The issue is that prototype (scriptaculous uses prototype) 'hooks' native elements properties and that may make others libraries not to function well.
I suggest to stick to one library and use it. It may help reduce code collision. Try jQuery as leakim971 suggests.
Firebug will greatly improve your javascript debugging options, download it in case you don't have it.

changing the $ to jQuery and removing scriptaculous did nothing to resolve the problem

This is so strange.

The previous error about the "vote" left.
You've new ones, for example it seems you don't have any submit_btn or reset_btn in your page...

okay so it was the scriptaculous conflicting, but how do I keep both?

replacing $(".vote") by jQuery(".vote") does not make it work
