CSM6 Elections - The Results!

The elections for CSM6 have ended, and the results were announced just now at the EVE Fanfest here in Reykjavik. We yet again saw record turnout, smashing the previous results with almost 10,000 more votes cast this election than last and the highest level of campaigning we've ever seen. Without further ado; I am very proud to be able to announce that your delegates for CSM6 are:

Congratulations to the delegates.

Voter demographics

As with all of the post-election results, these will be identical in format to the previous results demographics.

There were 49,096 votes cast by eligible voters (i.e. older than 30 days and thus able to vote), amassing a turnout of 14.25% - once again a record turnout. Of the total votes cast, 659 voters (1.34%) chose to abstain. This abstain % is far lower than previous elections, indicating that players had a better idea of who they wished to vote for compared to previous elections.

In this election it continued to be the case that female users seemed less likely to vote than males. Male voters were once again 96.9% of the voting total number and female voters 3.1%. This is compared to the 96% male and 4% female ratio of the EVE user base.

The average age of users who voted was 31.3, an increase from 30.8 last election. The average age of accounts voting was 2.66 years, also a significant increase from the last election. This could indicate increased interest in the CSM amongst EVE veterans. 55.44% of voters had accounts older than 2 years, 13.33% older than 5 years and 2.88% older than 7.
