I used to worry that my poll answers would be public knowledge until I created my first poll. In order to get as many answers as possible on our polls by assuring you that your answers are anonymous, I'm creating a sample poll here so that you can see what the public poll looks like and how it works.

Notice that the number in the votes column is underlined - when you click it, it will bring you to the results page with names of other members and how they've voted. If you are in an anonymous poll, that number will not be underlined as it will contain no link to a results page.
