I click on my choice, then Vote. I get a pop up box that says: You must provide an email address to vote on this poll. and provides and OK button.
I am signed in, my email address is in my profile. I get emails from DK regularly at that address. What gives? How do I provide an email address when I already have one provided that DK is using?
I don't want to go all CT, but is it because of the choice I make in the poll? Or maybe it doesn't work in Firefox?

    I am using Chrome and got the same result. Did Daily KOS not like my choice???

    I read down the comments, apparently the poll doesn't like Firefox. Also reported are some troubles using Chrome. See:

    Apparently Safari and Internet Exploder are approved browsers.

    I went to my Android device and opened the poll in the Firefox Focus browser. It went directly to the poll results. Then I opened DK in the Dolphin browser. It gave me a box to fill in my email address at the bottom of the poll. Voted that way. So Safari, IE and Dolphin work, at least.
