in reply to Casting One's Vote in the Boothe of Voting (twice)

I believe you can (Voting Booth poll) vote as many times as you like, but only your first vote counts toward the results.

Update: Well, mischief - I sit corrected.   A while back I noticed almost the same thing, except I could vote several times from the same IP and only the first counted.   Either vroom tweaked the Voting Booth a bit, or I'm delusional.   I hope those two are mutually exclusive {grin}

    I don't think so - before I voted there was 243 votes, and straight after voting there was 244. Unless someone else voted at the same time as me (which I guess is entirely possible,) both my votes from home and work were counted. If I try and vote again from here it tells me that I have already voted from this IP - does this imply that it's OK to vote again from another IP? I think Mr Gore would have something to say about this.
