What about an option to force only those who log in to vote on polls?

Right now I seem to be seeing a lot of anonymous votes that skew results.

I think what's happening is that members log out and then vote more than once.

Maybe if the polls were broken down to members/non-members it would be more honest.

I agree. That's how it is in most forums.

Well, it might even be solved somewhat by locking an ip address on the vote. Most ISPs use a lease time of about one day I think.
