If a poll is set to display the votes publicly, and a user votes and then their username is changes, their old username still shows up under what they voted for. The same happens with @mentions.

As it stands, we pull this data from a cache, so updates are difficult. Future changes could have this not pulled from the cache. If it's a significant issue, you can rebuild the poll cache in the control panel and that should resolve it.

The same happens with @mentions.
This is expected as the name is part of the content of the post, which we don't change.
