I guess that you could modify the polling feature code. But I wouldn’t call such modification an enhancement because polls should avoid having 20 options.
I’m genuinely interested to hear why you need users to choose from 20 options?
- Why will 20 options work well for your users?
- Do you really care about the minnows (small fish) you capture votes for?
The rest of this reply simply gives some reasons why I’d not recommend more than 20 poll options.
Consider that Survey Monkey’s first tip is Keep it short and simple and all other poll providers recommend something similar. They often refer to the number of questions but the same applies to the available choices for each question.
I regularly create polls and I regularly hit the 20 option limit. Most of these polls are for products in a product category. I usually have many more than 19 products to fit into the poll - I always leave an option for none of the above or don’t know so I realistically only have 19 free slots.
Such long polls usually only get votes for one third to one half of possible options. At least, that is my experience. I just looked at 13 polls on one public Discourse forum and found the ratio was 56 options voted for out of of 141 options provided.
Anyway, long poll lists usually arise because of unresolved issues:
- We don’t know enough about the options, e.g. product market share.
- We don’t know enough about our users, e.g. what market segment are they in.
- We don’t have the resources, i.e. time, money, references, etc.
