To show the poll results on the website
(From a client) Have a gadget to show the responses in a fun graph or chart. For fun polls to show useful results.

If the poll feature were to seriously be considered as an election tool (eg vote for new club management team), the poll results must be beyond reproach/question. it would provide credibility as to the accuracy of the poll results when using a system gadget or similar to publish the results to membership/wesite/email blast etc without human intervention. since current results must be published with human intervention, there will always be the critic that will question the results have been changed.

Assuming you're going to work on allowing members to view poll results... would like a feature to specify an archive date vs. viewing all polls forever. Would also like switches to indicate viewing permissions - e.g., public, contacts, members, members by level.

Showing members the current tally is a great way to get them to participate and to engage them in the questions being asked.
I was all excited about publishing a poll to get discussion started on choices for club activities, but without this feature it is so much less useful.
