Given that we have multiple choice voting it seems strange that only two selections are attracting votes towards the end of this poll.
Am I just being paranoid?
It's because of open voting. People see that the other choices win't win so the vote for one of the possible winners. In a hidden vote, this is not possible so people vote for what they want since they cannot se how the vote is going or who voted for what.
