Demographics and Statistics

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

There were 21,158 votes cast by eligible voters (i.e. older than 30 days and thus able to vote), amassing a turnout of 7.36%. Of the total votes cast, 629 voters (2.97%) chose to abstain.

The gender difference between voters closely follow the gender difference in the subscription base, with male voters being 96.9% and female voters being 3.1% 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 2.2 years, meaning that most votes were cast by veteran players - the age consistently going a bit up since the first election where the average age was 1.77 years, second 1.94 and third 2 years.

47.31% of the voting accounts are veterans of two years or more.

What is interesting is that several countries show much more interest in the election than others - with the Netherlands, Finland, Belgium, Romania and Ireland being above the other countries.

A loud applause goes out to the candidates that announced their candidacy and participated in the campaign. We wish them the best and remind them that now begins the work of being a CSM delegate.
