    Hiya,

    I've removed the poll asking how people voted until after voting has finished because we're not allowed to host exit polls until then. I will reinstate it tomorrow morning for you

    Thanks,

    Jack

    Because:

    "While the polls are open, it is a criminal offence for anyone, not just broadcasters, to publish anything about the way in which people have voted in the referendum, where that is based on information given by voters after they have voted.
    That includes, of course, anything emerging from exit polls (which, by definition, are asking people how they actually voted), although the broadcasters themselves have not commissioned any exit polls for this vote.
    In addition, no opinion poll on any issue relating to the referendum can be published by broadcasters until after the polls have closed."

    For what's it worth, you could have kept the poll as long as you just kept results hidden until 10pm.

    Should be updated now with just a 'have you voted' poll.

    "Have you voted" takes me to the thread with the poll results.

    And the widget is still showing results in the sidebar.

    I think it's your cookies, it's definitely switched over at my end. If you do a hard refresh it might clear it - thanks for checking this as it is important

    Naughty rule breakers (although to be fare, not rule breaking, just breaking the law lol - no biggie at all, I'm only joking - easy mistake to make).

    Tried Chrome instead of Safari. Cleared Cache, History, everything. Still have the Results widget in the sidebar and the "Have you voted" link takes me back to the thread with poll results.

    It's weird because it definitely had gone, but now it's back.
