    Can the person who created a poll see who voted, or only the number of votes?

    Anyone can see who voted if that option was selected in creating the poll. Click on the number of votes for each option to see who chose it.

    Oops. Now you know what I was thinking.

    That will have to be made clear to voters, in those cases where polls are controversial, or even, for example, if the poll is simply critical of a specific airline. some people are very private about the airlines knowing what they think...

    That particular poll was set to allow multiple selections. I only selected 2, I'm not sure if there is a limit to how many you can pick.

    Yeah, especially since there seems to be no way to revise or remove my own vote.

    You can of course click on "show results" before voting to see if the poll is anonymous...

    I suspect most people won't be aware that it possibly isn't anonymous, or won't consider that possibility in advance. However, if they are aware it could impact their vote, or even their participation.

    So, I think that transparency or clarity in advance of voting is important.

    You can choose to not make the poll results public.
