Sending poll questions through Exchange to non-Outlook users

The most important thing to consider is what client software the recipient is using and whether or not it can interpret the voting component of the message. In particular, the client must support Rich text format. If it does not, the recipient will likely receive a winmail.dat or other similar attachment with the message, rather than displaying the voting buttons.
