  • This slide is for display to the audience to show them how they will vote on your polls in your presentation. You can remove this slide if you like or if the audience is already comfortable with texting and/or voting with Poll Everywhere. Sample Oral Instructions: Ladies and gentlemen , throughout today’s meeting we’re going to engage in some audience polling to find out what you’re thinking, what you’re up to and what you know. Now I’m going to ask for your opinion. We’re going to use your phones or laptops to do some audience voting just like on American Idol. So please take out your mobilephones or laptops, but remember to leave them on silent. You can participate by submitting an answer at on your laptop or a mobile phone. The service we are using is serious about privacy. I cannot see who you are or who voted.
  • Press F5 or use the tool bar to enter presentation mode in order to see the poll. If you like, you can use this slide as a template for your own voting slides. You might use a slide like this if you feel your audience would benefit from the picture showing a text message on a phone. In an emergency during your presentation, if the poll isn't showing, navigate to this link in your web browser:
