I remember that the first launch of the Vulcan rocket was scheduled for this year but has been delayed to next year. Therefore, NASA and ULA have pondered several potential launch windows within the middle of 2022, including May or June. In your opinion, in what month of the middle of 2022 will the first Vulcan rocket launch take place?

Did you want this to be an actual poll where choices are presented and people vote? If so, you've neglected to put the poll in.   If not, this is in the wrong section.

Is there is mechanism where I can insert a poll into this section?

Here is the screenshot where you should be able to find the button to add a poll. If your browser doesn't have that button, just post what options the poll should have and I (or someone else) will add it.

Please give considerable thought to your poll question and choices. Make sure you have choices that cover all the possibilities (including some you think are unlikely) as well as a none of the above

Your poll, to be any good at all, needs more than just "summer 22" time slices, it needs time slices in 23, 24, 25 and "later than any given here" and "Vulcan will never launch at all" choices or it will not give you meaningful results.

Good polls are not easy to make.   Good luck .

Also, by convention, unless you have made prearrangements, your poll should not run more than 31 days. I have been known to edit polls to correct that oversight which tends to make poll creators unhappy.

Agree. Given the uncertainty around the delivery and certification of engines, I would suggest a poll with quarterly increments (so, Q2 2022, Q3 2022, etc.) going at least to the end of 2023 + some "never" option.

Good input... However, I think it's OK to have the 22 slices be monthly even if the 23++ slices are quarterly, since that's what OP is trying to find out, what is the consensus for the most likely launch month.
