Ask a question. Get immediate results.
Polls are an easy-to-use, effective way to gauge broad public sentiment with a single question. Polls are especially valuable to drive interest and participation in a project — stakeholders can engage and see community opinion in seconds.
Jumpstart participation with Polls
Polls are simple and quick. Polls are a straightforward tool that can be implemented promptly as conversations shift throughout the consultation process.
Instant results and open participation. Anyone can vote in a poll and the results are shown to participants after submission, encouraging engagement.
Polls are versatile. Polls can be used as a tool within a project or added as a widget to gather additional data. Polls allow community members to quickly get involved in the engagement process.
Use Polls at every stage of your consultation
Polls improve engagement data and participation when used in combination with other EngagementHQ tools. Use polls throughout a consultation to gauge sentiment or promote participation:
At the beginning of a consultation. Kickstart community participation by embedding the tool and driving traffic to a project. Polls are a simple entry point for participants.
As an additional tool during a consultation. Use polls to acquire extra quantitative data around key questions that provide additional context in a consultation.
At the end of a consultation. A quick poll makes it easy to weigh public opinion on well thought out solutions in the final stages of the engagement process.
