Electronic Forum (Epcot Poll) Attraction in Communicore East at Epcot, from December 23, 1982, to March 16, 1991. The pre-show area then became the World News Center. The poll was taken when guests were ushered into a theater and shown short films, usually on current affairs. Then opinions were solicited, with the guests pressing buttons on the armrests of their seats, and the results being tabulated instantaneously. For several years, compiled results of the Epcot Poll were distributed to newspapers throughout the country.
