I remember that some Ubuntu boards (TB, CC) used the poll feature a few
years ago but recent votes were done with CIVS.

I've done a vote for the DMB a few weeks ago and was suggested to use
CIVS instead of LP for it. The downside to use CIVS was that I first
needed to get a list of all voters from LP (over the LP API) and that
people without a public e-mail address were not directly able to vote.

Having something like CIVS inside LP would be a nice feature but I don't
believe it's worth the resources given the few votings I participated in
(don't know if other teams have a higher demand for voting). So it's
probably better to disable/remove this feature and use the resource for
something more important.
