If someone wants to cheat in your poll they will - be it by deleting their cookies, changing their IP address (for example dialling up to another connection on a modem), using a different web browser or even goign to a seperate computer and voting again! You can make it "inconvenient" for people to cheat in your poll using cookies, IP address and so forth, but you can never completely stop someone who is determined to cheat. The most you can do is log the details of every single vote made so that if you suspect foul play you can go back through the logs and look for patterns that suggest someone has been cheating the system.
