Poll Administration


By default, the Administrator role is the only role in OSU Drupal 6 that is allowed to administer poll results.

When a poll is published, site administrators will see an addtional Votes tab on the node.

Upon clicking the Votes tab, you will be redirected into the Votes list. Users who are registered with the site will display using their username.  Anonymous users will be listed via their IP address.

By default, CWS has set the poll permissions so that all users, including anonymous ones, can participate in a poll.  If a site administrator wishes to change this, it can be done via the Permissions panel at Admin menu > User management > Permissions, in the Poll group.
