The SecurePoll extension is a special page extension for elections, polls and surveys. Currently incomplete, mainly due to the lack of an election setup interface. However it has been used for Wikimedia Foundation Board elections, arbitration committee elections and the Wikimedia license transition vote.

Installation[edit | edit source]

Once the SecurePoll extension has been added to the extensions folder, add this line to the LocalSettings.php file:

require_once( "$IP/extensions/SecurePoll/SecurePoll.php" );

Next, run:

mediawiki/maintenance$ php update.php

Creating a Poll[edit | edit source]

Currently, to create a new poll, it's required to:

  1. write an XML file
  2. import it using the import.php CLI command

in the tests folder you can find four example files:

  • 3way-test.xml
  • approval-test.xml
  • radio-range.xml
  • schulze-test.xml

to import a poll run from the cli folder:

extensions/SecurePoll/cli$ php import.php ../test/3way-test.xml

Now visit Special:SecurePoll and you will see your poll.
