    I'm looking for something that's easy-to-follow, and free of course! :) Any recommendations?

    You didn't mention your scripting language and database format, so here are some common but useful links to help you, generally speaking:

    PHP and MySQL:
    http://www.joedolson.com/poll-with-php-and-mysql.php

    PHP, MySQL, Ajax (JavaScipt)
    http://www.dhtmlgoodies.com/index.html?whichScript=ajax-poller

    Flash, MySQL:
    http://www.phpjabbers.com/web-poll/flash-poll-mysql.php

    The first choice is by far the easiest to implement. The others get progressively harder. Note, there are literally a million ways to do a poll, wait for others to reply here with ideas before deciding. If you are unfamiliar with PHP and MySQL, part of a standard LAMP setup, please visit this link for a novice tutorial plus other platform suggestions:
