I just voted in someone's poll and the results showed 5 people voted, 4 giving one answer and 0 giving each of the other answers, i.e. indicating that 0+0+4=5. But I gave one of the other answers, as the green check mark indicates.

Screenshot of the inconsistent poll state:


From thread Game about cancer?

Here is the current poll (the numbers have already changed from when I made my screenshot):
Poll

I had the exact same thing when the poll was only at 2 votes, but I figured there was just a delay, that then seemed to sort itself out, so the numbers were then correct.

The bug isn't that the percentage is off, but that your vote didn't display normally immediately after voting. If you clicked Questions and then Results, all should be normal. I've observed this a few time in the last week, possibly related to the slowdowns.

Due to some very ambitious polls that have been posted to the site lately, we've delayed the calculation of the count - unfortunately this can result in some messed up counts. We'll see if we can "fake" it.
