See how people voted on your poll

To see how people voted on your poll:

  1. Tap in the top right of Feed.
  2. Tap the message or messages where you sent the poll.
  3. You can see how someone voted below the photo you sent. If it's a group message, you may need to tap See Updates to see each person's response.

Keep in mind that if you created a group message, people in the message can't see each other's responses to the poll.
