#poll results incorrect? #poll #bug

I created a poll yesterday, and I find my results look different depending on how I look at it.
If I look at the 'see Results', the total of the votes overall show as 22 (with 8 for the first answer, and 3 for the third answer). But when I look at the poll results using "see who responded", I the votes only total 20 votes (with 7 for the first answer and 2 for the third). I know that I personally changed my vote from the third answer to the first answer. So the 'see who responded' column seems to reflect that change. But the 'see results' total, which shows the tally by %, seems to show my first vote, and my second vote.
I am afraid this vote can be rigged!

Is that a bug?

I'm afraid it's a bug. Only 20 respondents appear per page. There were two  respondents on a second page, which is why there is a total of 22 on the see results page vs 20 on the see who responded . The bug is a different one, though. When you want to reply to those 8 who voted for answer #1, you will only reply to the 6 who are on the first page. You have to go to the second page to send an email to those responders separately. I have 150 members.

You can change the number of items you see per page.  Go to your Account, select Preferences, and change the Items Per Page setting.  Most of the time I use 50.  Infinite Scroll doesn't work on some items, like databases, but not sure if it works on Poll results.  If not, you may want to use 100.

Thanks, Duane. Infinite Scroll doesn't work. Instead, it just gives a false sense of security. I changed back to 100 per page.
If I wanted to use Infinite Scroll, or if I were just one of my members (who wouldn't bother with their preference settings), I would have to reply to all those who voted for choice one of my poll by emailing those who show on page one, and those who show on page 2, of the 25 members who voted that way. 

I've reported this as a bug to beta.
