The First Meeting

The first meeting of the Council will be held in EVE next Saturday, the 30th of May. Though the session is closed to the public, you can follow the progress and discussions on the CSM forum section where all meeting minutes will be made public.

The Council members will be flown to Iceland the weekend of August 28th to meet with CCP after having deliberated and prioritized topics raised by players. A full listing of election results may be viewed here.

Demographics and Statistics

The format of the following information is identical to the analysis of the first election and the second election, to allow for an easy comparison.

There were 27848 votes cast out of the number of eligible voters (i.e. older than 30 days and thus able to vote), amassing a turnout of 9,74% compared to 11,08% in the first election and 8,61% in the second. As can be seen when comparing the elections, the subscriber numbers have gone up by a significant number meaning that the total number of voters has to follow if the % is to keep up. Of the total votes cast, 992 voters (3,56%) chose to abstain.

The gender difference between voters closely follow the gender difference in the subscription base, with male voters being 97.1% and female voters being 2.9% of the total voting population compared to 95.5% versus 4.5% male - female ratio of the player base.

The average age of accounts voting is 2 years, meaning that most votes were cast by veteran players - the age going a bit up from the last election where the average age was 1.94 years. 44.6% of the voting accounts are veterans of two years or more whilst those veterans constitute 29% of the eligible voters.

What is clear is that the voters from Bulgaria are very interested in the CSM process, as 38,10% of the players from Bulgaria cast their votes.

We want to thank all of the candidates who threw their hats into the ring and gave it their all. As the last two election watching the campaigns unfold was fascinating. We also appreciate those who supported the CSM by voting. There is no way of knowing where this will lead, but we're all in it together and the promise of what we can accomplish together is astonishing.
