Default Question re polls

When we have a multi choice poll ie; Pick your favourite 5... for example

How are the winners chosen? Is it purely the number of votes or does the order in which we select our choices matter?
I know that single choice polls would be on amount of votes but not sure about multi choice polls..

just curious really..

When I do them it’s determined by the number of votes each one receives

I hate it when people steal my ideas before I think of them.

Last time I did a poll, it was the number of votes. There was not a way to weight the votes so that a first place votes held more sway than fifth place votes. If a guy got 30 fifth place votes, he would beat a guy that got 29 1st place votes.
