Error rendering macro 'multivote' id is only allowed to contain alphanumeric characters and has to start with a letter

Description

I have around 1200 users who's username is first.last@email.com
They are not able to use multivote without manually changing the id *

When creating a new Multivote, the id self populates:

multivote_first.last@email.com_1541618385057

This produces an error:

Error rendering macro 'multivote'
id is only allowed to contain alphanumeric characters and has to start with a letter, but was 'multivote_first.last@email.com_1541618385057'

Users need to manually remove the "@" for the macro to work. This is not easy for such a large group of users to remember.
