We treat each person’s vote as a single entry, calculate the score at the end, and publish the total number of people who participated.
Instead of relying solely on the number of votes cast, we always calculate a show’s percentage each week and include it in the results.
We have done our best to eliminate spam and data duplication by recording each user’s IP address and allowing only one vote per option for a specific poll via that address to ensure data integrity.
In other words, if you attempt to re-vote for a poll option while browsing incognito, your vote will be discarded. If you haven’t already done so, you can always return to vote in a poll as long as it’s open.
