    If I make a form with lets say 8 voting options and someone votes multiple times from the same IP address. Can I run a report and single out their votes to just one vote. Or export all the IP for each. To ensure the votes werent counted twice?

    Hi Tobie,

    Thank you for your inquiry. JotForm can prevent a computer from sending multiple entries by checking its IP address. This is called Unique Submission - Strict Check. Using the Strict Check option in the Unique Submissions settings found in the Preferences button's Advanced Settings tab, the form will prevent multiple submissions from a particular IP address to be submitted:

    In addition, JotForm records the IP addresses of users who completed your form and submitted their vote. You can use this as a way to doublecheck your votes and you can review the IP addresses by going to the submissions page of the form.

    We hope you find this information helpful. Please let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!
