You can probably be able to do that with Lime Survey. I know it supports
anonymous surveys. I learned about it at one of David Warlick's
workshops and had it installed on a server and had published a survey
before the 90-minute presentation was over, and he had only spent about
2 minutes describing what Lime Survey could do. Obviously, it's not
hard to set up. Like so much open source software, there seems to be
more emphasis on adding features than writing documentation, but it's an
amazing tool that is even more impressive when you consider it's free.
On the other hand, I found the process of setting up a survey to be more
cumbersome and involved than the commercial survey services, but you
appear to have a great deal more control over how the data you gather is
Personally, I prefer tools that are named after fruit above those named

Subject: Survey tool to limit responses and still guarantee anonymity?
I'm looking for a survey tool that will only allow one response per
person yet still guarantee anonymity.
As far as I can tell in Google Forms, there's no way to ensure that each
respondent only answers the survey once.
SurveyMonkey's email collector allows you to send a unique link to each
email, yet it also allows you to track responses by email -- thus
negating the anonymity.
