    As some proxies also forward the original IP address, no, the website will most likely not consider your hits through proxy servers as unique.

    Stuffing a ballot or otherwise raising the hit count for a website isn't as easy as you think, because a good hit counter counts different things than just page requests - but you will have to find out yourself what the specific website considers a hit.
