Small point -- because this is the first election we've done using SUL

Aye, this is right, the wiki listed on SecurePoll is what CentralAuth says is your 'home' wiki. Actually, in most cases, this has been the case for a
while. If you look at a voter list for the English Wikipedia Arbcom
Elections
<https://vote.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?limit=500&title=Special%3ASecurePoll%2Flist%2F392>
for example you'll see that there are random examples of people with
"Domain" of another wiki because that's their home wiki even though the
only place you could vote from was enWiki. Of course in the past not
everyone was global and in those cases it was the Domain the account was
coming from.


The point that many editors are active on many wikis, and thus
potentially eligible on many wikis, is certainly true. I would guess
that (again because of SUL) each wiki's voter list represents those
eligible voters who have that wiki as their home wiki, so there's not
duplication. But the election committee can verify that.

Thanks, now I got it. My current account was indeed registered on Meta, though currently I am barely active there.

Cheers
