Captcha testing and voting restrictions

Sometimes we are faced with deliberate attempts (bad or irrational) to influence voting results. Such attempts may discredit the outcome, rationality of poll’s results or our own efforts to create the democratic voting platform and true representative survey of public opinion. We then must protect all polls against external attempts of abuse. We protect all polls equally without exceptions. Democratic, equal and balanced system is at our mission.

The ElectionsMeter project is non-governmental, independent, non-profit and non-commercial project with ambitions to be a long-term and affordable alternative survey of public opinion in politics. We do our best (through an unusual number of complications) to implement the project independently, impartially, responsibly and seriously.

Some polls has relatively small quantity of voters but high and growing popularity. In such a situation ElectionsMeter system must recognize and decide whether it is by result of bad attempt or by natural will of voters. System always applies our own general mathematic-statistic formula to decide it, in every minute, at every vote.

Some polls in certain situations are protected by Captcha test. In extreme situation some polls get protected by temporal voting restriction.
