I am still at the beginning stage of setting up of my blog, please visit here http://www.skapadmin.net/blog/

The poll would add value to me, so I downloaded and did what explained here http://www.fatihsever.com/post/BlogEngineNET-Poll-Widget.aspx

I did as explained in the read me file of Poll Widget

READ ME FILE BEGINS HERE--------
------------

1.  Copy "Poll.cs" file to "App_Code/Controls" folder which is in BlogEngine main directory.

2.  Copy "Poll" folder to "widgets" folder which is in your blog's main directory.

3.  If you use database for BlogEngine, you should configure your database with appropriate script
    in the "Database Setup" folder.

4.  Copy "poll.css" and "progress.gif" files in "Sample Css" to your themes's folder ('Standard',etc.)
    in "themes" folder which is in your blog's main directory. Open "site.master" file in your text
    editor and add the following code just above the </head> tag.

    <link href="poll.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
        

5.  If you want to use polls archive, copy "archivepoll.aspx" and "archivepoll.aspx.cs" files in "Archive"
    folder to BlogEngine main directory. Use some link like that to access archive:
    http://www.yourblog.com/archivepoll.aspx

I need some clarifications,

1. Point 5 asks to copy the files to 'archive' folder in root directory, but I couldn't find one

2. I don't find any option to access Poll widget in my administrative page of Blog.

Please guide,

Anand

"1. Point 5 asks to copy the files to 'archive' folder in root directory, but I couldn't find one"

This is your main folder.  You will find these files in the same folder: contact.aspx, error.aspx, default.aspx, etc....

 

2. I don't find any option to access Poll widget in my administrative page of Blog.

The access to the widget is not in the admin panel.  You access it in the widget zone.  Not all themes have the widget zone included by it is easy to add.  once you have the poll installed change to the "Standard" theme and go to the bottom of the right hand column.  There you will see access to the widgets.

Hope this helps
