Public voting concern

Hello!
I have a little concern with the public voting.
Specifically, that you only need an email to vote. There's not even a captcha. It seems to me that this could be exploited rather easily. Is there something I'm missing?
Sincerely,
Luca

    Hi Luca,

    Great question. We take voting fraud very seriously and actually use a number of manual and automated processes to vet votes for eligibility at the end of the public voting period.

    Feel free to email me directly at support@challengepost.com with any additional questions you may have.

    Best,
    Megan

    The problem with public voting is there are too many submissions. You can't reasonably ask any individual not involved to review 60 entries objectively.

    So basically the winner will be the most popular person on the social networks. Which in the end fullfill only the purpose of raising awareness around challengepost. I can understand that this is the original intention here, so no bad feelings from me, it's just people need to be aware of that.
