I would like a filter to show the current user which issues they did not vote on yet.
Project = X
Issue Type = Y
This is what I have and it doesn't work:
project = "X" AND issuetype = "Y" AND voter != currentUser()
Jobin's suggestion is good, but you could also try this:
project = "X" AND issuetype = "Y" AND (voter != currentUser() OR voter is EMPTY)
The example you gave will only find issues where someone has voted, but the current user hasn't, but will leave out any issues with no voters at all. The reason this works and the original doesn't is a peculiarity of how JQL treats empty fields and equality. When there are no voters, both "voter = currentUser()" and "voter != currentUser()" evaluate to false, but "voter is EMPTY" or "voter is NULL" will evaluate to true.
This may seem non-intuitive, but it's consistent with the way SQL treats null values, and since JQL is modelled after SQL, the architects decided that it would be important to keep the SQL semantics in JQL.
