Poll Everywhere student guide

This guide explains how to use PollEverywhere

Participating in Polls

To participate, you need to be connected to the Internet, or vote by texting. To learn how to connect to Eduroam, if responding while on the City campus, please review the Eduroam guide.

When your lecturer asks a question with Poll Everywhere, you will see instructions on how to vote:

If you are connected to the Internet, on your device:

  • Open your browser or download the Poll Everywhere app from Google Play or the App Store.
  • Go to the web address displayed by your lecturer (for example, or /Lecturer).
  • Choose the option you believe is correct.

If you're voting by text message:

  • Text the keyword to the text number provided in the slide displayed by your lecturer.
  • Text the option letter you want to vote on (A, B, C, etc.).
  • Each text will be the price of a text message, or free if you have a message package.
