Question on Polls

On a public poll - where you should be able to see how the others voted - it allows me to see the votes before I have voted myself. But once I vote, then I cannot see the names any more.

Is this working correctly? Why should voting in the poll remove a person's ability to see the rest of the votes? Can it be changed? We need this for a poll I have in GM.

Let me know, please. Thanx

We definitely can't change private polls to public for privacy reasons. It's not even an option for us in the software to do that.

Sorry, I guess I didn't explain the question properly.

The poll is Public.
And it works for everyone as Public, before he/she votes.
But after he/she votes, then the poll in not Public to that person any more. But it is still Public to everyone who hasn't voted yet.

The change would be to allow the Public polls to remain Public to everyone after they vote.

You can do a quick test to see what I mean. Create a Public poll. Watch it a bit as people vote (but don't vote yourself, yet.) You will see everyone's name and how they voted. Then go ahead and vote. The name information will be gone. Only the numbers appear for you.

You have to click on the numbers - then all the voters become visible.
