The easiest way for your audience to respond to a Poll Everywhere poll is on your unique PollEv.com/username page. The audience visits your response page from any browser and responds to the activities as you activate them. Because it works with any browser, this response option is recommended for international audiences who may not have appropriate texting and long distance plans.

On certain paid plans, you can customize your PollEv.com page from the Settings page in your Activities. In the box after ‘PollEv.com/’ type in the word you would like to use as your voting page. This word will also be your username. Many presenters choose usernames that are concise and relevant to their presentation.
