We now record every time an admin goes to Special:SecurePoll/list/<id>. A log entry is also recorded every time you refresh or use pagination. So you may see lots of entries for the same user and election (like below).

A log entry is only recorded if the user is an admin of the election and is in the electionadmin group. If a non-admin user goes to /list, they do not see any of the personal data (e.g. IP, UA) and a log entry is not recorded.
