Lunchtime Poll
June 6, 2011 8:21 AM   Subscribe

I want to be able to poll audience members via text message during a live event. What programs/apps/websites should I check out?

Ideally, this is how it would work -- I ask the audience to vote between choice A and choice B by sending a text message to a provided phone number. Their votes are sorted or tabulated or whatever, preferably resulting in some sort of infographic -- a bar graph for example.

The goal is to avoid needing an actual person on hand to receive and tabulate the votes as they come in.

Anyhow, does such a tool exist?

I saw Poll Everywhere demonstrated recently, and it seems to do exactly this. Free or cheap for small groups.

We have been testing out Poll Everywhere in our school and I think it would be just the ticket for you.
