Create a Poll Channel
This method does not require you to add any other tool. However, you need to have the administrative right to make new channels in a server. Open discord for PC or install it on your desktop and follow the steps below:

5. Click on the settings icon.
6. Go to ‘Permissions‘ and ‘Advanced Permissions‘.
7. Make changes under ‘Text Channel Permissions‘ and select ‘Save Changes‘.
8. Return to the channel and send questions.
While typing the questions you need to be detailed. Add questions and options along with emojis. Also, add a note at the end of the question about deadlines and misuse of emojis. You can use this method of making polls through emojis even without creating a channel. But having a separate channel will let the poll stay at the top and not get drowned amidst the messages.
Poll-Maker is a website that can be used as an additional tool while you make a poll on discord. Making a poll based on emojis might be an easy option but everyone can see the options others voted for. On top of that, there’s a chance people won’t take it seriously. To avoid that you can use a poll-maker in the following ways.
1. Go to Poll-Maker.
2. Write questions with options and select ‘Create Poll‘.
3. Click on ‘Copy Link‘.
4. Return to the discord channel and paste the link.
Members can go through the link and vote by choosing the appropriate answer for them. This way you can make a poll on discord through an online poll-maker.
