You must have an account and must have not answered the most recent Poll question posed by the admins to reach this phase's event.
This phase occurs immediately before your first Crossroads event of the game. Note that the Crossroads event will be taken from the queue simultaneously as the Poll Phase event, such that a Forced End during the Poll Phase will prevent going to the companion Crossroads event even in the next turn. Also note that the Poll event cannot ever occur for the same player a 2nd time in the same game.
In a Poll event, the turn player can vote on the most recent poll posed by the admins. Other players can see how you voted on the page after voting. You can also choose not to vote; this allows this event with the same question to occur for you in a future game.
