Rationale[edit | edit source]
Extension:SecurePoll is the voting software used by the Wikimedia community for important elections, such as the Wikimedia Foundation Board elections and the English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee elections. Unfortunately, the extension is incomplete, and technical difficulties with it have necessitated restarting elections and discarding votes.
This project aims to make incremental improvements to SecurePoll so that it can be used more easily and with fewer difficulties.
