Edit the first post in the topic that contains the poll - from there, edit away.

If you have the permissions set, and the moderators cannot do the above, then maybe it's a bug to log via Support.

Yeah, I did check that. There was no way to edit the votes. Thanks for your answer.

Finally, got an answer to this from the support team:

Hello.

Apologies for the confusion. The ability to change poll counts was removed in version 4.6.2. The problem is that manually setting a vote count to an arbitrary number is logically incompatible with deriving the vote count from the total number of votes submitted, and by whom. The way that polls and their votes are calculated and stored does not lend itself to having manual changes made.

If you feel this is something that should be changed in a future version, please make that suggestion on our community in the Feedback & Ideas section.

@Mark HI was one of the early proponents for improving the Release Notes - Invision Community.

An area that could benefit from improvement is to highlight "everything" that is deprecated and to give us some advanced warning so that we can take any necessary steps to mitigate their absences.

Maybe you could create an entry for "Upcoming Deprecations".  You list out any that will be made in the next 4.x.x release and those that might happen further down the road.
