Adding polls is similar to any other sticker on Instagram. Drag and drop it onto your image in your story. Once that it was done, you will be given an with the option to customise the question and choices. 

People viewing your story will be able to tap on a choice to vote, which will then show the overall results so far. To see the results for yourself, simply open up the viewers' list for that image or video on your story. Also, it can show you total vote numbers, who voted, and what they chose.
