verified both on that election and on enWiki 392 (a newly set up election to ensure this wasn't just a bug from the issue last night that was already patch).

Copying in Dan and Brad.

Just a note that I tried this on a testWiki poll too (where I know polls worked earlier) with just basic voter requirements (to ensure that it wasn't because of the voter list) and got the same error so it appears to be a newish bug.

When and where, exactly, is this specifically known to have been working previously? I see there's an issue where polls using $wgServer in remote-mw-script-path are going to be broken since Gerrit change 67586 was merged in October 2013. But besides the ones created very recently, the only other poll that would be affected is "test enWP poll" on testwiki from last month. But that seems to have no votes so there's no evidence it ever actually worked.

As for Gerrit change 67586: 'wiki' was never being passed as part of the jump, and $wgConf->get() isn't going to be returning anything sensible for wgServer anyway unless also passed a correct $suffix parameter and a $params that contains 'lang'.

Fixed, and backported to wmf8. It also accidentally works for jumps from enwiki even though that's still on wmf7 until the train deploy this afternoon.
