    Do you mean the definition and how to use it?

    Either can be adverb, determiner, pronoun or conjunction.
    Normally we use either in negative sentences instead of too, or also.

    Ex: I don't eat pork and my wife doesn't either.

    Besides, people will use either with or whilst neither with nor.

    Ex: Either she goes or I go.
    Neither of them did it.



    So either at the poll means, neither of them are correct for you...
