Results Totaling 110%?

Posted by colaboy29 on 2010-08-26 19:13:06

My poll results are totaling 110%. My three options are 30%, 10%, and 70% respectively right now. Is there a way to correct this or why it is happening?

I'm guessing that you have a multiple-choice question where voters can choose more than one choice. The numbers reflect what percentage of the voters selected any given choice. For example, if you had three choices and every voter always checked all three, each choice would show 100% in the results.

If it isn't this type of question, please post a link to your poll and I'll take a deeper look.

Yes, I did allow multiple choices. Thanks for the info. I'll remember that on my future polls.
