As soon as the person running the Session activates a Poll, it will appear in the Poll tab in the Vevox window. You can collapse or expand this by using the small grey  arrow to the right-hand side. 

You respond to a poll simply by clicking on the answer you wish to choose. You can  clear your answer and change it simply by clicking ‘Clear’ in the bottom right-hand corner, then selecting your new poll answer by clicking on the answer you want.
