    You can click on the number of votes to see who voted for it.

    When creating a poll the OP has the option to choose whether or not poll votes are hidden

    But it's not public after I voted?

    It's still public, just the view changed because you voted. Most polls don't show who voted, more people will vote if it's private, that's why you hadn't seen it before.
