CSM8 Final Ballot and Pre-Election Results

Candidates required a minimum of 200 Endorsements to be included in the Final Ballot for the CSM8 Elections which begin tomorrow. Here are the results:

Disclaimer: These are the results of a Qualifier for the full Election not the Election Results themselves. The Election for CSM8 will run from April 4th til midnight on April 18th.

201 Endorsements

With over 16,000 endorsements and 31 candidates successfully qualifying for the full election, we are in for a fast paced and exciting election period. While these results may be helpful for looking into which candidates you might want to investigate further, I would caution that they potentially have no bearing on the full election. As is always true in an STV election, you should always vote based on your own preference for candidates, not on what you think other people will vote.

The CSM is the elected voice of the players in the development of EVE Online. Click Here after April 4th to vote, and make sure that you spread the word, more votes cast in the election means better representation for all of EVE Online as we move into the Second Decade of EVE.
