If I may offer a suggestion on the mechanics of the poll:
Rather than making it a static once a week, choose your person, tally the results poll, why not make it a live-poll where people basically put a dot
in a "radial button" field beside the candidate whom they support, with an extra field for "undecided".
Each time someone dots an option, it adds them to a counter of people who've taken the poll.
If you read a post that makes you change your mind to a different candidate or become undecided, you simply select a different radial button to update
the poll's results, without actually changing the count of people surveyed, and without forcing people who stick with the same candidate to have to
take the same poll over and over again.
That way the poll is always up to date, doesn't require constant redundant input, and saves time for everyone involved (except for the initial time
investment of coding such a thing, which might be substantial).
