The Everybody Votes Channel allows users to vote from one of two options on an all manner of questions, and then compare it with what the rest of the users around the world think, over the Internet. Each Mii has its own vote.
After voting, you can make a guess on which answer will be the most common one, and when the poll closes, you can compare your prediction with other users.

You can also submit a question to Nintendo for usage in the voting process.

It downloads small .bin files for the poll content and for other purposes. They are all between 1 KB or 5 KB in size, so nothing very large is downloaded.

Some of the files that the channel retrieves are below:

When you vote, the software sends a request to a cgi-script on Nintendo's WiiConnect24 server: http://rcw.wc24.wii.com/cgi-bin/check.cgi

It sends data such as:

mlchkid=e706ff05cbcb792e44f468c72be058f0&chlng=3f9f0f500659ed3c1bbaf429ab570ce7

and receives data somewhat like this:

cd=100
msg=Success.
res=430994fdf7545123e762b4e5a52a6bd4f1f84c56
mail.flag=799197837977475F84ZX53ZZ5F9998W43
interval=10

It also stores your answers and questions in the Wii's internal filesystem in the WiiConnect24-folder.
