We know that this election cycle will be different. We have already seen socially-distanced debates and town halls. Remember, Megaphone polling is a platform that allows you to give viewers a voice in the political discourse live and in real-time.

KVUE Austin used Megaphone polls to let viewers/voters share their thoughts during a recent Senate Debate. Before and during the debate, KVUE asked viewers to vote for the topic they most wanted to see discussed.
