Re-open poll or extend voting period
Hi, I love the new polling feature! Some feedback based on our first use is that it would be nice to be able to reopen a poll after it has been closed and also, it would be nice to be able to extend the date of a poll if voting numbers are trending low. Thanks!

I recently closed a poll only to have our board request that it be extended due to low participation. Limiting the reopen option to a few seconds makes it worse than useless!
When using the poll feature to conduct advance polling for an election, prior to an AGM, it is necessary to be able to stop the poll at a legislated time period prior to the meeting (e.g. 72 hours) then reopen it once the meeting is convened.
Using a 2nd poll without immense manual effort to great a group of those who have not yet voted, is not a good solution for preventing double voting.
Reopening a (temporarily) stopped poll would prevent double voting.

The time issue is critical! I cannot give a poll an end date and still make it available immediately. If I try to use today's date as the start, I get the error "You cannot publish a poll with a start date in the past. Edit your poll to change the start date". Not only should there be an option to add a time to the date, there should also be an option to specify an end date/time and open the poll immediately.
I would like to be able to set a time as well as a date for the poll to start. If we have a call at 1 pm I would like the poll to go out after the call.
Polls – once created, you should have the ability to change or add a closing date
