    When not voted yet:

    When voted:

    multiple_vote_voted.png

    I think both phrases below the options should be showed before the user has voted.

    Doesn't the check box imply the "multiple votes allowed" phrase?

    For most people probably, it just seemed strange to me to notify users about it after they voted.

    It makes sense. You see that 10 people voted, but count the votes and they total 15. You could say there's an error somewhere. Instead, you immediately see why the numbers don't add up: because anyone can vote on multiple answers.

    No, not for most user. It is better to write both below the options

    When you see that phrase, it means you already voted and so you must know it's a multiple vote poll. If you have to be notified it's a multiple vote poll after voting, then it's too late. Everything after voting should only serve as a reminder.

    That phrase is also shown to people viewing the results or those that can't vote (eg, guests).

    Yeah some inexperienced new members might think it's single vote. That's why it would be best to show it before voting too I think :)

    I don't think tis is a problem. In my eyes it is better for understanding the results.
