    Guests can't vote on polls. Unfortunately, Guests can't do a lot of things even if you change the permissions due to the way that Guests are handled. There is no way to track one guest from another. Poll votes are stored by User ID. All guests have a User ID of 0. So even if they were allowed to vote, only the very first guest would be able to vote. Since User ID 0 has a vote, no other guest would be able to do so. You should encourage users to register on your site to use all of its features.

    If you want random and unstructured polls where everyone can vote any number of times, you should look at Straw Poll.

    You should to upgrade to 5.4.4 and see if that fixes your original issue.

    5.2.6 is obsolete and we are unable to provide support for it.

    I don't believe so but I'm having difficulty finding where those live? Can't seem to find either in settings of in the online manual?

    Guest can't vote despite permissions?

    We'd like to allow guests to vote on polls but for some reason they don't get the option.

    unregistered / not logged in user group has Can Vote on Polls set to Yes.
    Channel permissions for this group also has Can Vote on Polls set to Yes.

    Seems no matter what we try, guests can't vote. What am I missing?
