As per our meeting today, here's a short list of voting systems from
other projects. Note that in all cases in this list, the voting
mechanism (as implemented in software) is primarily driven by
governance policies:

Apache governance: https://www.apache.org/foundation/governance/
Apache board election: https://wiki.apache.org/general/BoardVoting

Openstack governance: https://governance.openstack.org/
Openstack board election:

Drupal governance: https://www.drupal.org/governance
Drupal board election:

Also note that voting on motions as proposed by SLOB members is a
different use case than voting on SLOB candidacies, even if the
software used to implement the process is the same.

Here are some related systems that are used for voting.

Concordet Voting: http://civs.cs.cornell.edu/
Helios: https://heliosvoting.org/
E-Vote: https://github.com/mdipierro/evote
OpaVote: https://www.opavote.com/
