Which number should my audience text?

There are two different kinds of phone numbers:

Regional numbers that can receive text messages from outside the country. Audience members that have cell phone plans outside that country will have to dial internationally and incur any applicable texting charges.

Local numbers that can only receive text messages from within the country. Audience members that are local to that country will not incur long distance texting charges and have a shorter number to dial.

If your audience is from different countries, you can share multiple numbers. The responses will all appear in your poll results no matter which number they were submitted through. (Note that our poll instructions will only be able to show one number due to space constraints, but you can share the complete set of options on a slide, sign, or handout or include it in an email to participants.)

Complete instructions and a list of phone numbers to share with your audience members can be found in our User Guide.
