Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Mobile and apps/Mobile support for SecurePoll

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Mobile support for SecurePoll

  • Problem: As a wikipedian who uses wikipedia on public transportation, I would like to be able to vote on my phone. I recently found out that the SecurePoll extension had broken, which meant I had to revote on the enwiki 2020 ArbCom elections. I was (and still am) stuck on a bus, so I went to the voting server on my phone. What I found, was that the voting server had no mobile support.
  • Who would benefit : Users that want to vote on their phones.
  • Proposed solution: Add mobile support

  • I'm not saying this wouldn't be a benefit, but I do feel that since it's functionally only editors who need to use it, and voting periods are usually at least 10 days long, not having a mobile functionality for it is a fairly limited issue. Nosebagbear (talk) 17:13, 2 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
