    Can I change the close date of the poll after the poll was created?

    You can change the close date by doing this:

    1) Open xf_poll using phpMyAdmin
    2) Change the close_date field

    The value is Unix timestamp so you will need to get the correct value here:

    @AndyB many thanks for this little tip :)
    Had to change the date of a poll and found your answer ;)
    Now I also know what format the timestamp is and how to convert a date to a unix timestamp.
    Learning every day :)

    An easier method is simply to edit the poll and uncheck "Close this poll after", save, edit again and set the close time.
