    Well, first you need to find a poll. That's the hard part. I recommend starting your quest at http://www.cgi-resources.com .
    Personally, I use "A Voting Booth", which is very easy to setup and use.

    Yes I have a poll, but I don't know how to implement it. Do I need to use SSI's?

    Your poll should come with a readme .txt file that explains all of this, if not, I suggest just getting a new poll...

    There are dozens of polls out there, some use SSI and some don't.
    So like James said, you could get support from the author (documentation) or try another poll script.
    http://www.hotscripts.com also a good place to find scripts

    If you are with a good host they can be very helpful in assisting you to set up any CGI scripts. You might want to see if you can get in touch with your host and they might get you off to a good start.
