We can view the poll results as the votes are coming in; but I'm not sure if that's wise.

At the moment I'm inclined to hold my vote back, and use it as a tie-breaker should the need arise - but this doesn't feel in the spirit of the thing. If I couldn't see how the poll was going, I couldn't use my vote like that.

I'm wondering if it would be better to wait till after the poll closed to see who voted for what.

Umm... not sure if that is possible if you mean hid the current results. But you are right, sometimes the current votes will affect someones voting.

If you mean the fact that I make the votes public so you can see who voted for what. I though it would be interesting to see who was voting for what. Also, the previous months when I allows multiple votes I figured it would keep people honest.

What does everyone think. Would you rather the interim poll results be hidden?

But, should the poll results on the poll about visible poll results be visible?

But would you have the results of the pre-poll visible or not? I'd say you should do a poll first.

Hmm... where is everyone. We have 50+ voters the first two months polls.

Lets go people... let your choice be heard!
