Discord Poll - How to Create a Poll on Discord

Are you trying to gather all the opinions of the people on your Discord channel? A poll might be an excellent way to get a quick snap judgment of everyone on the server. However, there is no built-in functionality for a poll in Discord. Here are 2 easy ways to create a Discord poll. 

One of these methods will entail posting a message and having people vote on it via emojis under the message, which is a manual way to create a poll. The other way requires inviting a bot to your Discord server. In this case, we’ll be using EasyPoll, but other apps are available for free. See below for both methods.
