I am trying to create an online voting form for candidates standing for elections to our organisation's Council. Checking through the Forum, I read that the Catcha input could be set up for unique submissions. I cannot make this function work either as loose check or strict check. When I test it from my own computer, I can still make multiple submissions with no warnings or refusals. What am I doing wrong? I need to ensure one off voting for a list of candidates.

Please Use A Strict Check And Add The Followong To Your Form:
Captcha And Uniques Id
Any More Problems? Please Do Tell!

What is supposed to happen? Should I see a refusal to accept a second submission from the same IP address? Am I reading this function correctly?

I tested it and you are right Strict Check does not work on this form.
I have assigned a bug ticket for this. One of our developers will work on this. Unfortunately, they are very busy, so it may take a while before we can resolve this issue.

Sorry, no, it hasn't! I have just voted from the same machine (and IP Address) three times with no challenge. Further thoughts?

Just want to add my input on this issue. I concur with Sandy, strict check isn't working on my end either.

Please feel free to use my test form! I have tried yet another more elaborate version which is at http://www.jotform.com/sandymacrae/TestVote It uses the same Strict Check and it doesn't work either.
The idea here is to eventually put up the candidates pictures and a brief statement from each. Using separate Check Boxes works better in the Excel Spread Sheet Report, too. Thanks for your efforts.

Sandy, In your form Strict Check doesn't work but I have cloned your form and I have added pictures. In my form Strict Check is work fine. Can you clone and test it ?
- sandymacraeAnswered on September 21, 2011 at 10:25 AM
Yes, your form works for me. What have you done that is different from my version (apart from layout)
- emrew86Answered on September 21, 2011 at 10:27 AM
I just cloned and add images, that's all.
- sandymacraeAnswered on September 21, 2011 at 10:33 AM
Hmm - I'm not sure that is a real fix! I have just gone in, taken off the Stirct Check then put it back on again and no joy. As I said, I created a new form from scratch after my first failure and this doesn't work either. I will try making a clone instead. Thanks
- sandymacraeAnswered on September 21, 2011 at 10:37 AM
No, making a straight clone doesn't work for me. But your version still does. Do tell...
- emrew86Answered on September 21, 2011 at 10:40 AM
I don't know what the problem is. I made a new form now. http://www.jotform.com/form/12633710937
Strict Check is working fine. I couldn't create your problem again.

Yes, your new form works for me, too. Strange. I will try one more time to create another new form with Strcit Check later today. Many thanks for your efforts.
