and yes that is the rule this is why any good poll is public because MODS have had to tell us what the REAL votes are for polls when they get spammed.
For example, what often happens is we cant see the votes but when the mods look, 5 members actually voted for item A, but then magically there 40 anonymous votes making the vote 45
and then theres 40 member votes for item B and 2 anonymous votes making the total 42
that poll was spammed
BUT by all means if you would like to include the spammed votes im more then fine with 64 yes (92.75%) and 3 no (4.35%) and 2 others LMAO
and ill gladly make a new statement that nobody was silly enough to publicly vote no
