So the from IP address is recorded as part of the HTTP transaction for each form 
  submission.  Thus, the results reporting could, in fact just take the last 
vote for each IP address and report such results.  Thus, it wouldn't have to 
complain about duplicates.  But, if you voted repeatedly and saw the numbers 
changing per your voting attempts, then it's clearly not configured to be smart 
about taking votes only once for each IP address.
