    There currently is a cookie method in place. You should be able to see this when you fill in the poll, if it does not seem to be working for you can you please supply more details.

    Preventing multiple votes is a tricky thing, people can always clear their cookies and vote again if they are so inclined. Using the IP to register a vote is also a problem as users may share IPs and prevent others from voting.
    The only sure method would be is to require them to verify there vote though email. This would work but may deter people from voting. Though the option may be introduced so you can do more serious polls.

    I’ll try uninstall and re-install; but from my side there are just no logging options at all. Going through your screenshots here on the plugin page; I have exactly the same options as you have.

    Is this setup somewhere else?

    Its not an option its on by default it cannot be turned off. Once you vote your cookie is set and you are taken to the chart next time you visit the poll. Unless you delete your cookies.

    If people are voting more that once they are either deleting there cookies to do this or there is something different about your system causing the cookies not to work.
