Polls, send reminder(s) to non-responders to vote
Polls - once created, you should have the ability to email non-respondents reminder(s) to vote
It looks like no change has been made to address this over the past three years. I have no way to resend an individualized access link to a poll to those who have not responded, and since the responses we have are anonymous we can't generate a new (duplicate) poll to send to non-responders. Very frustrating.

the system has the process to email non-responders already built in.
the process I am referring to is that of scheduling events. So why not treat this the same as an event. By that I mean that an event has a number of announcements that are scheduled and sent ONLY to members who have not responded to the event announcement.
In this case, the first announcement is the one sent as the initial poll email/announcement. the second (and possibly, the 3rd ) announcement would be sent on a specific date only to those that have responded to the poll.

Enhance the poll module by being able to resend reminders to members who have not answered the survey or poll.

Need the ability to send reminders to non-responders as soon as possible.
I definitely vote for this idea ….

This step will help the concept of membership polls immensely. It should be a top priority

I agree that there should be a way to resend the poll. People are busy and e-mails can be pushed aside. When you have had low participation in the poll you want to resend it to remind people to vote. It would helpful to have the Link to the poll more obvious to find on the poll set up page as well.
Otherwise, polling is a very nice feature. Thanks.

I really like this idea. I just tried resending the initial poll email and all the links were broken. Timed reminders like we can do for events would be very helpful.
Karen, thanks for suggestions.
Our practice shows that it is hard to manage suggestions that combine many things together. So we prefer to close them and leave only suggestions that a focused on specific idea or problem.
I see that you've already voted for several suggestions related to poll.
So, let's keep this for your new one. I really like the idea to send the reminder to people who haven't voted yet.
I updated the description and the title to match the suggestion.
Also, I created the new suggestion about the ability to change or add a closing date – https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932/suggestions/34668175
