How to use StrawPoll in three simple steps
We have designed our free poll maker to be as easy and intuitive to use as possible. At the same time, we are constantly optimizing the workflow for creating simple, yet well-designed polls.
Whether it's a quick poll with friends or the solution to an eternal discussion in your forum, StrawPoll helps you find the majority opinion quickly and easily.
Or are you active on social media and have you always wanted to find out the honest opinion of your followers? With StrawPoll you can quickly create a free poll without having to register. Of course, we also offer a login to use complex poll features and to manage your previous polls, but this is not mandatory.
The results for each poll are updated in real time via server-to-client push communication. Who has access to the live results or who can subsequently edit their vote can be adjusted by the poll creator at any time.
As soon as a poll has been completed, the results can be exported in Excel or CSV format if required.
StrawPoll is an intuitive, user-friendly platform that enables users to quickly create and share live polls for a variety of purposes. Whether you're making decisions with friends, gauging public opinion, or gathering feedback from your audience, StrawPoll offers a straightforward, accessible way to collect and analyze responses in real time.
Creating a poll is simple and takes just a few steps: First, navigate to the StrawPoll homepage. Then, click on the “Create Poll” button. Enter your question in the designated field and add your poll options. Next, customize your poll settings according to your preferences, such as allowing multiple answers or making the poll anonymous. Then click on “Create Poll” to finalize and generate a unique link to your poll. Finally, share the link with your intended audience through social media, email, or any other preferred communication channel.
Absolutely! StrawPoll allows a variety of customizations to make your poll fit your needs. You can allow voters to select multiple answers if needed. You can make the poll anonymous to ensure privacy and candidness. You can set a deadline for when the poll will automatically close. And you can customize the visibility of the results, deciding whether to show them right after voting, only after the poll closes, or keep them hidden altogether.
StrawPoll employs various measures to ensure the reliability and integrity of poll results. This includes limiting one vote per user through IP checking, blocking VPN connections by default and offering CAPTCHA verification to prevent bots from manipulating the outcome. While these measures significantly enhance reliability, it's important to note that no online polling system is entirely immune to determined fraudulent efforts.
After creating your poll, you'll receive a unique link that you can share anywhere - on social media, via email, or on your website. Anyone with the link can vote in the poll, making it easy to reach a wide audience. For added exposure, consider sharing your poll on platforms relevant to your question's topic to engage with interested communities.
