There are probably 20 regular users of this forum, and over 2000 votes in the Tesco poll. Mmmmmmm, interesting.

How do you know they are unique. based on what? Many isp's use random ip address's so it can't be based on that. As there is no log-in process on this site, all a user would have to do is delete their cookies between visits, and this site would think they were different visitors.
This is proved by the fact I have just voted in the poll a second time.
In fairness, the poll should be removed, as just one person could have tainted its results.

This is what Google analytics says - so its not based on IP addresses but cookies so it can only be a guide
Unique Visitors (or Absolute Unique Visitors)
Unique Visitors represents the number of unduplicated (counted only once) visitors to your website over the course of a specified time period. A Unique Visitor is determined using cookies.

Ok, So anyone deleting their cookies between sessions would be counted as a new unique user and therefore, be able to vote again.

I guess there will be people who want to swing the vote one way or the other, so its just down to who's got the most time on their hands with nothing better to do, ie. the more Billy-no-mates you have on your side the more likely you are to get to the top of the poll.
