EDIT: I've only just checked my PMs, and it seems that WiiDark found it also, and sent me some details. Ta!
DOUBLE EDIT And I've just seen that StrawHousePig mentioned it in the forum. I am so slack!
The "Everybody Votes" Channel is downloadable from the Wii Shop after you have performed a system update, and lets you cast your vote on a series of polls.
You have to first set the region that you live in, and then select your Mii that you want to represent yourself. Once this has been done you have to choose an active poll to vote in. They're not that serious (as yet), and include topics such as "how do you prefer your eggs? Boiled or fried?". To cast your vote you have to drag you Mii to the correct space and vote.
Pretty neat stuff. You have a set time to cast your vote on the active poll, and you can even predict what you think the outcome will be. It's not the greatest piece of software made, but I think it's a great idea, and will lead to hours of amusement. it's very well presented, and I love the use of the Mii's. You can have up to 6 different Mii's loaded onto the channel at once.
What use is it? If you like people's opinions and facts and figures then it's very interesting. I have a sneaky feeling this'll help Nintendo do some market research too!
TRIPLE EDIT: Some video footage for you
