    Good afternoon, Tuno.

    (1) Yes, you are correct: the word "poll" can mean different things.

    (2) It can mean to ask people for their opinions.

    (a) For example, I polled 100 people to find out their favorite

    ice cream flavor: 75 liked vanilla; 20 liked strawberry; 5 liked chocolate.

    (3) It can mean the place where people go in order to vote for

    government leaders.

    (a) For example, the American people in 2008 went to the polls in order to

    elect a new president.

    Have a nice day!

    If you have any more questions, please just post them. Almost all of

    the people who answer are very polite and patient.
