 Announce polls widely, beyond GNU ways.
 Have users participate only through GNU ways.

My suggestion would be to perform polls as
you described in the beginning, i.e., how it's
been done in the past.  (See also below; this
could be enhanced.)

But it would be good to _announce_ a poll in
more places than just the Emacs mailing lists.

A poll can be _announced_, with instructions
for participating and an indication of what
the poll is about, on non-GNU sites such as
those mentioned so far - Reddit and the
various Stack Exchange sites (especially
emacs.StackExchange and StackOverflow).

Plus an announcement by Sasha on her blog and
her Emacs-news mail to address@hidden.

Announcing a poll in various places, providing
the same info about it, including how to
participate and what is expected, and then
having all users actually participate in more
or less a single location/way, which is
managed by GNU, would be good, I think.

That way to participate could be just what
has been done in the past - by email.  Or it
could be by way of a GNU Emacs website.  Or
by any combination of GNU-controlled methods,
as long as they all feed into the same poll.
