To add to what has been said, and to answer some of your questions.

The view count on the polling threads counts all views, which includes internet bots, members every time they open the thread and quite a few from when we, the staff, make the threads and cheek them and so on. As for the level of voting, often people wait until the last day or two, as they need time to read and decide for a favourite. Also some members simply do not care, while others might not be aware. Hence why we have the announcements and links in place. If people do not read announcements then there is nothing we can do.

We tried mass PM/emails in the past, and while they might get a few people to come and look we got consistent feedback that people did not like the mass PM/email for various reasons.
