Best WordPress Poll Plugins

What to look for in a WordPress Poll Plugin?

Online polls offer a fun and easy way to keep your audience engaged. That’s why popular websites like BuzzFeed regularly use them to create viral content and increase the time users spend on their website.

There are many WordPress poll plugins that can help you add online polls to your website. Here are a few things we will be looking for in a WordPress poll plugin:

  • It should be easy to use, so that you can quickly create polls
  • Polls should look nice and can be easily added anywhere including posts, pages, or sidebar widgets
  • Your poll plugin should be fast and shouldn’t affect website speed or user experience
  • Should be able to display poll results with graphs and charts

That being said, let’s take a look at the best WordPress poll plugins and how they stack up against each other.

  1. Is there any polling system where we create a poll Like
    Correct option is A, B, C, D
    and it can be used in any post using shortcode and will display different result for every post.

  2. I am looking for a poll that will allow users to add their own poll suggestions if they want.

    We are trying to create a poll of new ideas we should implement for our business so we want people to be able to add ideas themselves and then have other people vote for those ideas.

    • We don’t have a recommendation for that at the moment, it would normally be better to ask your users for their feedback before a poll is created so you can show what you would be willing and able to do on your site.

  3. Can you suggest me a poll plugin where user has to first register on our website using a form and then he can vote.

    • You could add a membership plugin if you want them to have a user before submitting or you could add a form plugin and the success redirection would go to the page as two possible options.

      Admin

    • WPForms does have an option to use images, for the other plugins you would want to reach out to the individual plugins for their current capabilities.

  4. Hi – I’m building a site for an awards ceremony too, but need to be able to link through to the biog pages for each of the potential winners from within the poll options (e.g. their name links to their biog). Is that possible with any of these?
    Many thanks in advance,
    Lynne

    • Hi lynne, I am actually looking up on building an Award hosting site.

      Have you choosed ur best Poll plug-in.

  5. Thank you for an interesting and very timely comparison. I want to organise an annual Awards Ceremony on my WP website. People would be nominated for an award and their details would be posted in that section of the website. Visitors would vote for the different nominees and the winners would be the people with the most votes. Do any of the above plugins have this functionality? If not, can you suggest some options for me? Many thanks in advance.

  6. Was asking webmaster to install Poll Daddy and they say there’s a lot to do to get this plugin online like setting up API credentials etc. and would take 2 1/2 work to complete SO, I’m thinking WPForms at this point. Is that going to be complicated and time consuming for an experienced web person to install on my WP site?

  7. Hello Sir, I see a banner below your YouTube Video you share saying- Subscribe to WPBegginers and a subscribe button. How can I add this like you in my blog?
