I am hosting a site which runs a online contest were user s vote. the current voting system tracks voters by IP address, and only allows one vote per ip address in a 24 Hour period. I am concerned about IP spoofing software that allows people to vote more then once a day. Is there a way to gather MAC address and filter by that or another way controling votes with a 24 hr period?
