This class can be used to display poll questions and collect the results using AJAX to avoid page reloading.

It can take as parameters a poll question and the HTML to display for each of the poll answers.

The class generates the necessary HTML and Javascript to display the poll on a Web page and submit the answer that the user picks to the server using AJAX.

The class can can also display poll results as graphical bars that represent the percentage of each of the picked poll responses.

The class avoids counting votes from the same user based on the user machine IP address and session variables. It also uses server side text files to store the updated poll results.
