Show DN: What do you think of the poll UI I designed for this site?(convos.org)

    Visually, the white space and border between the question and the first option seems odd to me. Once I selected an option I could see that these borders were really the results line in a preliminary state. Would a transparent/white border in preliminary state work just as well? That way when an option is selected the results bar could display without visual disruption to the content around it.

    Why not use the traditional

    method? As currently styled the form options look like your menu links. Why not use radio buttons to indicate a mutually exclusive option? I realize once a user has selected an option, another selection cannot be made, but radio buttons seem to be a good visual affordance to me.

    I'm wondering how this implementation affects usability on screen readers or similar devices. Otherwise, I think this is a nice, compact design that quickly renders. I like the bar visual indicator for a quick comparison between the options.

    I look forward to seeing your next work.
