Full length TBF post to follow. For now, this:
Poll closes 12:01 A.M. Eastern on 10/1
*Note: Vote only once. Duplicate votes WILL BE DELETED. This is not a contest to determine who can click on a mouse the most.
Update: We've gotten as many as 600+ votes from a single IP address. This has been an increasingly common pattern as we have gotten closer to the elections. I will continue to delete votes that are not legitimate. I apologize for any inconvenience.
Update II: To answer questions regarding the poll results: As noted above, some IP addresses have been associated with hundreds of votes. These batches of hundreds of votes come in large bursts within a very short period of time. They all go to a single candidate. Occasionally more than one legitimate vote can come in from one IP address, but when this happens, the pattern is quite different.
I have tried to get this issue resolved through PollDaddy, but so far, they have not given me a satisfactory answer. At this point, all I can do to ensure the integrity of the vote is to delete the bad votes manually.
To ensure that your vote is counted, please vote before viewing the results, and to minimize confusion, please vote from home if possible. I apologize for the inconvenience.
