How can I customize the URL on my polls?

The easiest way for your audience to respond to a Poll Everywhere poll is on your page. The audience visits your presenter page from any browser and responds to the polls as you activate them. Because it works with any browser, this response option is recommended for international audiences who may not have appropriate texting and long distance plans.

On certain paid plans, you can customize your page from the Settings page in your My Polls. In the box after ‘’ type in the word you would like to use as your voting page. This word will also be your username. Many presenters choose usernames that are concise and relevant to their presentation. If it is available, it will be your username and voting page for as long as you have an account, or until you choose to change it.

For example, if Darth Vader were setting up his own voting page, he would type ‘darthvader’ in the box after, and his audience would respond to his polls by visiting

*The Username can be between 4-15 characters and must be alphanumeric. It is not case sensitive.

When you activate a poll, your page automatically updates to show the poll that you activated. If the audience sees a picture of a piece of pie when they visit your page, it means you have not yet activated your poll.
