    This is not really very important, but it is a bug of sorts.

    I agree. I just want to see the people who voted in the polls.

    I have though that for a while, I also wish you could only vote for part of a poll. Which I find myself wanting to do once in a while where it is a two (or three) parter but I only want to vote for part of it. If you vote for part 1 of the poll but not the 2nd it should also let you come back and vote for that 2nd part unless you null'd the rest of the vote.

    It would also be a good suggestion that poll makers are not required to vote in polls. That might be the reason there are null votes in most, if not all, polls.

    Last time I made a poll I wasn't required to vote in it.

    I just wish the "null vote" button wasn't so much bigger than the "vote" button.
    You can guess what mistake I've made a number of times.

    Perhaps I shouldn't vote while drunk, but it's far better than posting while drunk.

    In order to see the results of the poll, you (the poll maker) have to vote. So I press Null Vote everytime.
