Poll Widget

Use the Poll widget to display polls on your MSL website's pages.

While you can set the default chart type in Poll Admin, you can override these settings on the poll widget, enabling you to present the poll results most appropriately. You can also update the size of the chart, changing the dimensions to suit your needs. 

By default, when a respondent answers the poll, the results table and chart are displayed, showing the poll's result. The widget's settings give you the flexibility to specify whether the results table and/or results chart should be hidden. This feature lets you keep the poll results private until a specific date. 

If the purpose of the poll is to decide on changes to your constitution or other significant matters, a referendum might be a more suitable option.
For further information, see Referenda Overview.


You can access this feature from your MSL website. Only Content Editors with access to Website Admin can access the Website Pages window.

For further information, see Poll Admin.
