Our first vote for this story is live. As promised, we're going to try using an embedded poll system... no more fiddling with emails and key phrases.

Also, according to some requests, the results will remain hidden until the next page is revealed, to prevent potential spoilers.

So go ahead and cast your vote and we'll see where this goes!

Multiple voting

Yeah, the poll allows multiple votes. There is no option within the software to prevent it. Obviously I'd like to assume that most people will just vote once, and that even someone votes a dozen times, it's not going to sway things in any major way. And I'd like to think that it's just not worth the effort for someone to come up with some crazy auto-voting system to cast a billion votes.

I'm going to keep an eye on it. If I find it to be an issue, or suspect that voting is at all compromised (or, the general consensus of the audience is that they'd feel better knowing the polls were secure), I will just shell out for a poll service that allows votes to be restricted to IP.
