Polls like election vote

I need to make a poll where the voter is known but his vote is anonymous 

I’ll explain better, my use case is a sort of election where I need to know what participant voted, but I do not want to see what they voted.

Hi @StefyIT,

The best way to see who voted but not how they voted would be to use the ‘Require name’ setting and then to remind participants to vote anonymously. You would first need to open your privacy settings and select ‘Require authentication’ and ‘Require name’. This will ask participants to enter their name before they can join the event. Then, when they are voting, you will need to remind them to switch to ‘Voting as Anonymous’ which they can see below the poll. This will completely anonymise the results.

Just by the way, participants can’t vote twice unless they open the event in another browser or device. Their browser remembers that they voted and it does not let them vote again.

I hope this helps :) Let me know if you have any further questions.
