During the EVE Online keynote at Fanfest 2017 CCP Seagull announced the winners of the CSM 12 election. As noted previously, the CSM was reduced to ten members and all members will travel to CCP for summits.
The winners were:
- Steve Ronuken – Fuzzwork Enterprises
- Rhiload Feron-drake – TURN LEFT
- The Judge – Circle of Two
- NoobMan – Hard Knocks Citizens
- Jin’taan – Curatores Veritatis Alliance
- Innominate – Goonswarm Federation
- Vince Draken – Northern Coalition
- Yukiko Kami – Brave Coalition
- Suitonia – Goonswarm Federation
- Aryth – Goonswarm Federation
Six of the winners were carry-overs from CSM11.
Once again, null sec candidates make up the majority of the council, though now they represent a smaller percentage now that the council is smaller and a low sec candidate, Rhiload Feron-drake, made the cut.
Voter turnout was up over last year, with 31,274 votes cast compared to only 22,345 in 2016.
While the trend was up, it was still nowhere near the peak of 59,109 votes cast for CSM 7.
There will no doubt be a dev blog to follow this up with details and the actual vote count. Then we can figure out how close Xenuria came to re-election.
