It is not exactly self-evident as to how to set up a poll question on your poll booth.  It won't let you preview the set-up so you have to guess. Well, I guessed wrong and now I can't go back and fix it.

I am all ears. What is the secret?

When you are creating the poll.
[*]Click the Add New Poll button [*]After the editor screen displays. [*]In the Subject/Title field type in what you want to be displayed in the forum table. [*]In the Message Icon field make your choice or leave it at the default. [*]In the Poll Question field type in question that the poll is looking to pose. [*]In the poll type, choose whether you want to allow just one choice to be selected, or multiple choices to be made. [*]In the Add Options field, type in the text you want to be displayed next to the first choice in the poll. [*]Then click the Add link to the right of the text entry field, then wait until that text gets displayed between the Add Options line and the top of the editor. [*]Once your first option displays, clear the text in the Add Options text field and type in the text for the next choice and once again click the Add link on the right. [*]Keep repeating this sequence until you have entered all the choices you desire to provide. [*]I don't believe that you have to enter any text into the large editor text area if you don't want to. [*]At this point you can click the Preview button at the bottom of the editor screen However the Poll portion of the post will not be displayed in the preview window, the only time it gets displayed is when you actually submit the post. If you have typed any text into the large editor text area that will be displayed in either of the preview windows.  [*]When you're done, just click the Submit button [/list] [/list]

Hope the above is found to be of help.
It's just a quick reply I'll clean it up and add graphics later.
