The event code for the event in which the poll is being created. Each CiL event that is created is assigned a unique event code that identifies it in the database - The event owner can find this value after creating a new event, by selecting the "altcast_code" which is found in their Viewer Window embed code (e.g. the event code is "46e6cd22b5" in "altcast_code=46e6cd22b5"). This value is also returned by the event/list API method.
