    Some people fail to realize that reactions can be disabled on a client-level. It would be nice for this to be an actual feature not only for consistency across clients, but so that we wouldn't have to rely on third party apps/services or client settings to make sure a vote is seen.

    You could also just create a poll on a site like strawpoll or something and link to it too, though. :/ Seems like it would just be an unnecessary addition, as it's something that can easily be done multiple other ways just as well, if not better and easier. Mainly I just feel like there a so many better things to implement that there aren't already alternatives to.

    Although this can be done by bots, it would be nice if it were a native feature. Seems simple enough (compared to other things they have added) so I hope it can be a feature.

    Reactions aren't as efficient as polls, polls can you show the percentages too.

    Just because you could make it using another feature doesn't mean Discord shouldn't add this.

    You can do that with reactions.
    If it's in a channel where people don't have the ability to add emotes they can only add existing emotes.

    It gets annoying having to do a strawpoll everytime you want to reach an agreement and a built in poll like how groupme or twitter has would be awesome. If this does get put in custom timers for how long the poll would last, and which roles can vote in the polls would be amazing!

    Ya'll should add like a voting poll option. They should be able to vote for one thing only, not like reactions, where you can react multiple times.

    I'm waiting for this myself. I've a few Facebook Messenger group chats, and this is the one feature they have stopping me from migrating them to Discord.

    I get that I can use reactions and a bot, but that's just super clunky, especially for those not familiar with bot commands and such

    Having a polling ability which doesn't rely on removable reactions would be awesome. Especially built in. Sure it is feasible to use reactions to tally votes, but you can't always trust your admins to not simply remove a reaction in their favor if it was a vote on something more serious.
