As you know, Blogger polls apparently do not work. They don't record all votes, they delete counted votes, etc. In an attempt to find find something more reliable, I turned to both a Rafflecopter poll and a poll I created using Google Drive.  I find both okay and both inadequate. Neither poll shows real time voting results. On top of that you have to log in to the Rafflecopter to vote.  As far as I know presently it is not possible for polls with Rafflecopter or Google Drive to show real time voting results. I have to explore Google Drive more and see if it's possible to include real time voting results. In the meantime I will continue to search for a better poll. I've considered PollDaddy but it only allows 200 votes per poll. These Debut Author Challenge Polls sometimes go well over that number. PollCode may be a good alternative.
