I included a poll in my latest diary and I want to let people pick multiple options
how would I enable that?

    Unfortunately, polls cannot be edited once published, but they can be deleted.

    and if I re-did the poll, how would I enable the option to pick multiple answers?

    Hello again.

    Yes, you can delete the poll. You can then create a new one, which will require republishing the post. The new poll, even if it has different content from the original one, is not likely to permit those who voted in the old one to vote again. (That process is linked to the story not to the poll's contents.)

    We don't have a design for polls permitting multiple answers, as in choosing more than one radio button. If you want to offer multiple options, the replies would have to be designed in such a way to offer the combination you want as one option. So, for example: choice A, choice B, choice C, choice A & B, choice A & C, choice B & C, all of the above, none of the above.

    Thanks for asking.
