Blocking repeat voters
Many of you have written to us asking if there was a way to permanently block users from voting more than once on each poll; now there is! But since it a little tricky, we thought an explanation was due.
When you create a poll, you can select to block repeat voters. There are two ways you can do this: block by cookie or block by IP. First, let’s explain these terms.
A cookie is a small file that your browser places on your computer; this file would indicate which polls you have already voted on. An IP address is an internet address which is assigned to your computer whenever you connect to the internet.
We hope that this clarifies blocking repeat users; if you have any additional questions, please feel free to email us.
