Check user is a tool on Ballotpedia that is only available to a small number of users. The tool permits those users to examine IP information of Ballotpedia contributors.

A user with CheckUser access gets an extra "CheckUser" option under Special:SpecialPages.

CheckUser requests are logged privately. The full log of all Check User searches is visible only to other CheckUsers at Special:CheckUser. The log lists who made a request, when, what the request was, and a provided comment. They do not list the results of the check, nor do they store any user IP data.

The list of Ballotpedians who can exercise the CheckUser option can be found at Special:Listusers/checkuser.
