If you’re unfamiliar with the term, a straw poll is an unofficial vote to generate a quick indication of a general feeling or trend among a populace.
I first encountered this poll creator during the Geek and Sundry Twitch.tv charity drive to raise money for Lupus. They used the site to create polls to quick gauge what content their viewers wanted to see during the charity drive.
After watching a few more Twitch.tv streams, I kept seeing it pop up, so I decided to go check it out more thoroughly and I’m so happy to be able to share it with you.
This is a great way to generate a quick Straw poll to decide where to eat, what activity you want to do, or just about anything because you have control over what the options are.
It’s really easy to use. You’ll load in to a blank poll, and all you have to do is type to create it. As you enter options more slots for options will appear.
At a school or business? Then you’ll want to check the Permissive Vote Duplication checking, so that it can generate votes from 1 location.
