SecurePoll is a tool used in Wikimedia projects for managing elections. Since 2009 it has been the election tool of choice for major Wikimedia community elections which appoint influential positions related to the management of the Wikimedia Foundation, including seats on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees and the Funds Dissemination Committee.
There exists additional documentation on how to use the software for Board elections on Wikitech.
Использование SecurePoll для голосований Викимедиа
Wikimedia Foundation staff oversee the use of SecurePoll for elections related to the Wikimedia Foundation.
SecurePoll is currently not available for general use. It is not currently available for anyone to use on request.
If it were available for use on request, then any Wikimedia community group which was holding an election might use it for their election. For example, any Wikimedia movement affiliates might use SecurePoll as a trusted way to manage their own Wikimedia election such as their own board election.
