You can only add a poll to a thread that you created. You can add a poll when you are creating a new thread. Or you may add one later. To the right of the subject line there's a button that says Add Poll.
Add Poll: This button will allow you to attach a poll to your new thread, allowing other members to vote for specific items. To add a poll to your new thread, click the "Add Poll" button and you will be presented with a pop-up window. In this pop-up, you'll be asked for the following:
Poll Question: This will be the question you ask for your poll. What you type here will depend on what you want the voting poll to be about.
Poll Answers: Here you will enter in the different options to provide to other members to vote for. You will be presented with five poll answer fields at first, but you can add more by clicking the "add more" link, allowing you to add up to fifty poll answers if needed. Your poll must have at least 2 answers to choose from.
Poll Options: In this area, you'll be able to define how many answers members are allowed to choose when voting in the poll. You can also set a date and time for when the poll gets locked, preventing further voting in the poll, as well as when to show the results of the poll to members. If you don't set a date for the poll to lock, the poll will remain open indefinitely.
After you have everything in place, click the "Add Poll" button found at the bottom of the pop-up window and the poll will be added to your thread once it's created.
