About The Poll and Possible Cheating
I am sure many remember when a POLL was abused by H.R. 2003 opponents, by voting multiple times. But that was a weakness in the POLL system that was using only cookies to prevent multiple voting. Read below to see how we minimize cheating.
Is it possible to vote more than once?
Yes and No. Here is why
This Poll will prevent people from voting more than once, in two ways.
1. We place a small text file (cookie) in your computer and read that to make sure that you have not voted before.
2. Since number 1 can easily be defeated by deleting cookies and voting again, our second line of defense is recording your IP address*, a unique number that identifies your PC in the network. Only one vote per IP address can be recorded. But this can also be manipulated using proxy servers and other IP spoofing techniques, but harder to an average user than step 1.
Here is another scenario, a user at a school computer lab could potentially go to 25 computers and vote for the same person as long as all the PC's don't share the same proxy IP address. So yes there are ways that people can vote more than once, but then again that is one more reason, internet poll is not reliable.
*A blow back scenario of one vote per IP address:
Two unique people could be identified by the same IP address when accessing our site specially when using an ISP's proxy server. This is rare but can happen. If you have not voted before and you tried to vote and you don't see the numbers changing, it is probably that you are sharing an IP address from the same ISP proxy.
