Changing one's vote in a poll


Victoria Rules
Is it just me or did it used to be possible to, if one clicked the wrong box by mistake and then hit submit, change one's vote in a poll?

I ask because the question's come up in this thread...

...and when as an experiment I tried to change my vote I couldn't. Yet I could swear there used to be a "remove vote" button, or similar, on polls.

Is this because it's a "public" poll? Or is it due to the new software? Or am I blind and just not seeing the button? Or ... ?

When you create a poll, there's a checkbox to allow people to change their votes or not. So, on some polls you may be able to change votes, and others not, depending on the OP.
