    Hi everyone; This is my first post so be gentle.LOL
    I recently put a poll on my hub and it doesn't seem to keep running tabs;it stops after one or two people voted.How do I fix this so it continues to let people vote ?

    It might just be the server lagging. I can't be sure though because polls are new to me.

        Well, as I just implied, when someone votes the vote goes to a script on Hubpages servers. All votes go there, if there is more votes then the server can handle they pile up and take time to complete. This pileup is called: Lagging  OR slowing down speed of a computer operation. If the problem doesn't fix itself in a day then I think you should get it looked into further.

    There shouldn't be any lag, but each signed in user or ip address gets just 1 vote.  If you make any changes to your poll question or answers it will reset as well.

      That was what I was also pondering, I was sure every user\ip only gets one vote (if you where having yourself vote or friends from your computer) that might likely be the problem.

      And thanks Paul, I know there shouldn't be lag, there never should be lag in anything if you think about it smile. I was just looking for a rational answer to the problem.
