3 Methods – How to Make a Poll on Discord – (PC & Mobile)

In this article, you will learn how to make a poll on Discord with 3 methods on PC and Phone.

Discord has this amazing feature of poll through which we can take the feedback or suggestions with the users.

There are 3 methods through which you can start creating a poll in Discord and I will explain the steps for all the 3 methods. 🙂

  1. Reaction Poll (Manually)
  2. Discord Poll Bot
  3. Poll Maker

Tips: 💡

  • Through Poll, you also get to know about the inactive users in your channel and you can create an AFK channel in Discord in order to move these inactive users to AFK.
  • You can add up to 5 emojis for reactions or options for the Discord Poll.
  • You must add at least 2 emojis for reaction.
  • There is no way to create a poll in android except through the polling site which has explained in the steps below.
  • You can end the Poll by simply deleting the link, or giving a command if you are using Discord Bot. 

Now, for example, we will create a Poll question

“Do you like my gameplay?” with two reactions of thumbs up and thumbs down


How to Make a Poll on Discord – PC

We will start with PC and with Reaction Poll which is the quickest way to learn how to create a poll in Discord.

Discord GIFs and reactions are a little different which will be explained below


Method #1- Reaction Poll

STEP 1:- Open your Discord Dashboard through your Windows App or through the browser by visiting https://discord.com  

STEP 2:- Once the Discord dashboard is up look for the server on which you want to create a Poll.

You need to click on the server icon which appears on the left-hand panel of Discord.

STEP 3:- Select the Text Channel in which you want to create a poll. Text channel will appear in the server box and the channel list will start with the # tag.

If you are new on Discord and do not have any text channel yet, then you can create any channel like private or any by going to the Server > Text channel and click on the + sign to create 1.

Give any name like Poll and click create a channel.

STEP 4:- Manage Permission by clicking on the setting gear icon on the right of the channel for which you want to create a poll.

  • Once the setting is up, click on the Permission tab from the left-hand side.
  • Now in the Permission box select @everyone under the ROLE/MEMBER.
  • On the right-hand side, you will see all the permission options with X  /
  • Scroll down to look for Read Messages and click on the tick bar to grant the reading permission .
    You can give others permission as well which depends on you.
  • Now Click on X for all the other remaining options. Close the box and proceed to step 5.

Permission to users


STEP 5:- Now create a Poll in Discord by first typing your question. For example:- If I want to create a poll for the question “Do you like my gameplay?” then

  • Type your question in the text box and hit Enter.
  • Now add a reaction for this question by hovering over your poll question and clicking the icon of emoji with a + sign which will appear on the right side of your poll question.

  • You can use the emoji for reaction depending on your question. So for this question, we will use thumbs up for YES and thumbs down for NO

  • So go to add reactions and type thumbs up to search the emoji, select and click Enter. Come back again to add reaction and search for thumbs down, select, and hit Enter. 
  • Now you have successfully added a Poll to the channel and people in the channel can now add their opinion on your question by using the reaction you created. 
  • You can also add instructions and rules for the poll to guide your users on what they need to do. Like for the poll question we created above we will type “Click:thumbs up: for YES and :thumbsdown: for NO” 
  • This will avoid trolling by using different emojis.


Method #2 – Discord Poll Bot

Through Poll Bot you can easily create reactions and straw polls. To use Poll Bot Discord click the link https://botlist.co/bots/poll-bot to open the website.

STEP 1:- Once the website is up click on GET and then on Discord from the drop-down.

STEP 2:- Now in case it asks you to log in to Discord, please sign in with your Discord ID and Password. If it doesn’t ask you to log in you can skip this step.

STEP 3:- In the next screen it will ask you to ADD BOT TO where you need to click on Select a server and then choose the server from the drop-down where you have your channel in which you want to create Poll.

STEP 4:- Click on Authorize to grant permission to add Poll Bot to the server.

STEP 5:- Open the Discord dashboard and bring up the server in which you installed the Poll Bot. From the server, pull up the channel in which you want to create a poll

STEP 6:- Now you just need to manage everything by giving commands to Bot. You can now use Poll Bot to create 3 types of polls.

We will again take the same example for the poll question we took above, which is “Do you like my Game Play”

  • Yes/No reaction poll: Type poll: Do you like my gameplay and hit Enter, Poll Bot will reply with a thumbs up, thumbs down, and shrugging reaction emojis. Users can now click the reaction emojis to vote.

  • Multiple reaction poll: Type poll: {poll title} [option 1] [option 2] [option 3] and Poll Bot will respond with letter emojis for each option, such as A, B, C, etc.

  • Strawpoll: Type +strawpoll {poll title} [option 1] [option 2] [option 3] and Poll Bot will respond with a link and an image to a poll on strawpoll.me where users can vote on the options.

STEP 7:-
Wait till the poll gets completed and check it after a day to see the responses from your users. Hope this explained how to make a poll on Discord with a bot


Method #3:- Poll Maker

Poll Maker is an online website for creating a poll and with this method, you can visit the website and type your question with answers.

This will create a poll link that you can share on the Discord channel and users can visit the link and give their poll.

STEP 1: Click the link https://www.poll-maker.com/  to open the Poll maker website

STEP 2:- Once the website is up, you need to type your question where it says type your question here. So we will take the same question which was “Do you like my gameplay”

STEP 3:- Now we need to type the answer to this question which the audience can choose. So our answer to this question of “Do you like my gameplay” will be YES and NO.

So write YES in the first box and NO in the second box

STEP 4: Once you are done with your poll question and answer, click on Create Free Poll which is in the green tab at the right-hand bottom of the box

STEP 5:- Once you click on Create Poll, Poll Maker will generate two URLs.  The first URL will be for the vote and the second one will be for viewing the result.

STEP 6: Copy the Vote URL and paste it into the Discord channel where you want to make a poll. Hit enter and the Poll link will now be shared in the channel.

STEP 5: – Filter Security settings, here to avoid Spamming and Duplication we have a few options available.

IP Duplication Checking (Recommended): – If this option is selected, duplicate votes will be disallowed based on the IP address of the user

Browser Cookie Duplication Checking: – Duplicate votes will be disallowed based on the browser of the user. Users can vote from another browser on their device.

No Duplication Checking: – If you select this option duplicate checking will be disallowed and users can vote multiple times they want.

Improve Spam Prevention: – By enabling these options users need to solve a small CAPTCHA, a kind of short test to verify they are humans. This will avoid Vote tampering.
