Anyone can see how many people have voted, both during and after the vote. This is displayed as an anonymous numerical result.
To see this:
- Go into the relevant topic, and make sure you are in the “Vote” tab, shown at the top.
- To the right of “Cast your vote” or “Voting results” (depending on whether the vote is still ongoing), you will see the number of votes cast.
In a private topic, you will see two numbers: “X/X votes counted”. The first number (on the left) shows how many people have voted and the second number (on the right) shows how many people have joined the topic in total.
In a public topic, you will see just one number “X votes counted”. This is the number of people who have voted so far.
