I just experimented and saw for myself that you can vote an endless amount of times in any poll, if you log out and then relogin Is there any way to prevent that?

It depends how the poll has been set up. Some allow multiple votes.

I think the check on whether you have already voted checks the IP address. Some ISPs assign a different IP address each time you log on, which might trick the poll.

At the end of the day, polls are just for fun anyway. Anyone who manipulates them clearly has too much time on their hands.Confused

The problem is that it works on polls that were not set up for multiple votes. And there are some saddoes that do manipulate those polls Like the CTTE vs. Supper's Ready poll and NC, Foxtrot or SEBTP.
