[Wikimedia-l] Q on the 2013 elections re voter breakdown

Denny Vrandečić-2
Hi,

regarding the Wikimedia Foundation elections 2013, I was trying to find a
breakdown of the voters, i.e. how many voted based on which requirements,
i.e. as editors, developers, staff and contractors, and board members, but
I could not find anything.

I would appreciate a pointer to that data.

Cheers,
Denny

As far as I can remember, that's not something that's collected. A list
of eligible voters are created and fed to the software, which either let
or don't let someone vote. All votes are recorded the same regardless of
how someone is qualified to vote, which may of course be via more than
one way.

Aye, as Katie said we do not keep track of who voted under what
requirements (and many of them are, indeed, eligible under multiple
requirements). You can see a list at
https://vote.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:SecurePoll/list/290 and probably
surmise some of it from there but once they voted, if they were eligible,
they went into one giant bucket.

Thanks, Katie, James,

yes, the list on vote.wikimedia.org was quite useful for a first check.
What I was looking for was exactly such a list, but annotated with which
requirements they fulfilled, but as James says, it can be surmised mostly.

I was curious whether staff and contractors of the Foundation or the
MediaWiki developers had a particularly large impact on the results,
especially considering that the number of voters have declined so much last
time, but looking through that list it does not seem like that.

Thank you for the help,
Denny
