Can nobody at all see how you vote, not even mods and admins?

All we can see is who's voted but NOT how they voted.

I'm saving bandwidth by not having a huge signature or picture

if someone was first to vote and the only one to vote you would know how they voted ?????? and with the notify me of any replies you could technically watch people voting

True, if only one person voted then it would be obvious what they voted for
Notification of Replies (Subscriptions) doesn't take into account votes made as the counts are held in a seperate part of the database compared with posts made. The subscription files only read the replies to posts and not to polls

If someone was so worried about being recognised in a poll, all they have to do is log out before casting their vote, but saying that the Mods have enough on their hands without sitting and scrutenising who voted for what and when lol
