Basic PHP Voting Script


We are running an awards show and need a form for users to vote. Once they have voted, we need the user to confirm they are real via email confirmation.

This will be used in a Wordpress site, so can either be as a Wordpress Plugin or bare PHP script which we can skin (using a MySQL database)

I only need the system to be built so the script works and the info is stored in a database, all analysis will be done separately.

Complete Process

The voting form will have around 10 dropdown lists of choices (will be supplied). There will also need to be an option of "Other" within this dropdown - which when selected displays a text input field for the user to insert their own choice.

When a vote is submitted, the following info (and anything else relevant) will be put in the database:

name, email, country, their vote choices by category, IP address, time, date, status

So once a vote has been submitted the user is then emailed with their vote choices asking them to confirm their email address.

Once confirmed by the user the status of their vote is changed so we know its a real vote.

If the vote is not confirmed, we will discard their voting info

This confirmation process needs to be clever enough so people can not guess the confirmation path for each vote and cheat/ block submit votes.

In the confirmation email, there also needs to be an option for the user to discard the vote, or edit the vote (whichever is easier to program)

There also needs to be a way of resending the confirmation email if people do not receive the email straight away (so from the page after the form is submitted).

Points to note

We can't have any IP blocking, as people use work PCs etc to vote - instead the analysis formulas we run on the data after voting is closed will catch these people.

Users only have to fill in their details, and I guess at least one category to submit the form - none of the categories are required

It would be nice to have some basic checking on the email address to confirm it is an email address before submission, but not essential.. As unconfirmed votes won't be counted anyway.

Extra Bonus Points

Instead of or in addition to asking for the users email and name, Facebook API could be used if you know how to use this, so the user is confirmed with us automatically. If you can integrate this and its secure from block voting, then this would be a great feature, as we can then encourage people to share they just voted on their accounts.


We need this script created relatively quickly, so we are looking for an immediate start.

For the bidders saying this is going to take 14 days and cost over £300 - do not bother posting.

We are an established web agency, we know how long this will take, its very simple to do, if you can ease our workflow, great, please bid, but do not waste our time bidding excessive prices for an easy project.

£250 is the maximum small project bid price, but I cannot see this costing anymore than £100, and that is delivered within 48 hours.
