Just checked if is possible to reset someone's vote in Limesurvey. It is 
possible but is a real pain. Because there is no connection between the 
participants table and the results table (which is normal in a 
anonymized vote system), I will need to know the way that person already 
voted. Then I have to manually delete a vote that has the same pattern 
from the results list (not that straightforward from Limesurvey 
interface), reset the participant status and reissue the invitation to 
vote. Please let me know if there is such an request.
