Hi Harry,

For example:

You define an URL, something like /voting. Used with a GET request, the Python
function associated to the /voting URL renders and returns a template
containing a form. You can create the form using Flask-WTF, and use
Flask-Bootstrap to make your page looks better. The user fill the form, and
submit it (POST request on /voting). Here, the function associated with
/voting get the form data, and store it in a database.

You define a second URL, /results, which on a GET request reads your database
and returns the results by rendering a template, something like
render_template('result.html', result=result)

Hope it helps!
