How to add a poll to an existing thread

Currently it's not possible to add a poll to an existing thread.
There is a workaround however.

Create your thread without the poll as normal.

When it comes time to add a poll, create a new thread with the poll data.

Then merge the old thread without the poll into the new thread with the poll - make sure the destination thread is the new one and do not leave a redirect.

Your original thread will now have a poll.

How do you create a poll in the first place? Can you link to a guide that explains how to create a poll? I'm not seeing where the option to do so is available when I create a thread. Is Poll an Add-on (not available in 1.0.1?)

There are a planning to change this in a future version ? because a regular user never add a poll.
