	Open Poll? Its free to register, so really its to try and stop 
people voting twice. They don't even want that much data just your E-Mail 
address. (The rest is optional)
	The problem with Web Polls is that people can always vote more 
than once making any result totally meaning less what ever you do. 
Ensuring an election is anoumous, free and fare is VERY difficult.
