So many people have a problem with people putting in bogus polls for a vote(Public)...

Limit polls to Empires of 2 or more countries...(Public & Exclusive Voting)

That way not all of the newbies have access to them... And they might have some real things to have voted on... Since they would/should have many more important things to do then put in a bogus poll...

And could we maybe set it at 6~24 months to vote(in~game)? 3 weeks is a long time for some people... And I vote that PAID(Public & Exclusive Voting) members have 1/2 to 1/4 that of the UNPAID(Public Voting)... Plus, in the real, months go by on votes not years...

Added, votes should and could be setup for each world(Public Voting)... A poll setup for you to vote in that of your own world and that one only(Public Voting). That way people would get the time to vote same as others in that world. Also, You would have much shorter poll lists, but 3~4 more lists. This would make it easier still because you would have less to go through at one time... If you have one to two people checking on the polls and such per world then it would be much easier then one or two people checking over all of the polls.

Public polls are spam voting system that makes noobs feel like their opinion matters. I don't think anyone takes them seriously apart from noobs, just let them request nukes all day long, its a marketing strategy. If a player only has a single country that doesn't mean they will never make a good suggestion, if they are paying, its more constructive to allow bogus polls then reduces the amount of people that can make suggestions. W3C don't blindly implement every poll pass anyways.

True but (like everyone says) in the real world its not that easy to make a motion... If you don't have something real to request or offer, then you have no chance of ever getting a single vote on it unless you count your own...
