# Overview of the project
In this section we will build a polling app.
As a user, we will be able to:
- Create polls.
- View existing polls.
- Vote on polls.
- See how many votes each option in a poll has, both as a total and as a percentage of the total.
- Select one of the poll options as "correct", and from voters of that option pick a random winner.

# Wrapping Up
Because we're running this app in our own computer, it's not terribly useful.
However, if you could allow people to vote over the internet, you can see how this could become extremely useful.
We've got some videos on our YouTube channel covering how to do that:
