Poll/survey component with email verification

by Matej   Last Updated April 05, 2018 15:10 PM

I need a component where people can vote in a poll after verifying their email address through a confirmation email sent to them. I know there are many web polls that work like this.

What we currently use (at http://cestamipromen.cz/hlasovani) is a really simple poll component with the output altered to suit our needs. It uses cookies and IP check to prevent fradulent votes, but it is not a very strong protection and as our website is growing more popular, there are many suspicious votes. Also, the email confirmation might make the poll more credible.

So what is the best solution?

  • Is there any Joomla component that works like this?
  • Or is it necessary to use a user registration and allow vote only for registered users? (we don't otherwise use user registration on our site, so I don't like the idea of having thousands of registered users in Joomla, just to allow voting in a poll)
  • Or is it better to use some external service for such polls?
