    a show of hands

    Hello.

    Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary
    a show of hands
    : an occurrence in which people put a hand in the air to indicate that they want something, agree with something, etc.
    ▪ Let me see a show of hands: how many people want a piece of cake?

    Are there any other ways of saying "Let me see a show of hands"?

    Thanks a lot, nonsense.

    Are there any other ways of saying the same thing as "Let me see a show of hands" without using a show of hands?

    Oh, I see...

    Please raise your hand if you...

    Things you might say that could result in a show of hands (or some shouting), depending on context and the cultural expectations of the people you are speaking to:

    How many people agree? (or How many of you...?)
    Who's with me?
    Let's vote! All in favor?
