In the interests of fairness :-
* How do you stop people registering new accounts on the forum just to be able to vote in the poll and give themselves a better score? I doubt anyone would do anything like this, but after putting in so many days and hours of work on my game I want to know that the judging is fair.
* Can you also force people to vote for a first, second and third placing to make the scoring more fair?

From what I can see the poll options on the forum do not allow this sort of granularity with the polling. For that reason I'm going to revoke my earlier comment that I don't care and say instead that I wish the voting to stick with the rules that we accepted when we entered the competition (saying the winner would be judged and not go to a public poll). At least that way I know I either won or lost because of the quality of my game and not because of a bad voting mechanism. Also, it means anyone who loses can't complain that they lost as the rules changed after the competition (and therefore there will hopefully be no arguments!)

OK, I see. Yes, I'm doing the voting internally then. Sorry for trying to bend the rules ;)

I just want to ensure it's fair, I hope no one holds that against me!

I agree with FutureCow. The judges is the right option, they can be 3 or more. Polling can be prone to errors with clone users or friends.
