The votes have been counted and the results are in. The CSM15 election is over.
A total of 36,120 ballots were cast, up about 4K from the CSM14 election.
In about a half an hour dissection of the votes, CCP Dopamine and CCP Aurora went through the election round by round. (video here) But when the final round was done these were the ten candidates left standing.
Alphabetically, they are:
- Brisc Rubal – The Initiative
- Gobbins – Pandemic Horde
- Innominate – Goonswarm Federation
- Kenneth Feld – Pandemic Legion
- Maria Taylor – Fraternity
- Merkelchen – Goonswarm Federation
- Mike Azariah – The Scope
- Phantomite – Same Great Taste
- Torvald Uruz – Abyssal Lurkers
- Vily – TEST Alliance Please Ignore
I was off a some from the guesses I made when voting opened, but out of a bag of 13 I thought were likely, eight of them made it. Out of the winners there are 7 null sec candidates, 1 low sec, 1 streamer, and 1 high sec newbie helper.
Gobbins and Merkelchen were the first two candidates to meet quote to be elected, making it in the first round.
The Imperium ballot again proved to be about three candidates deep in influence. It was able to get Merkelchen and Innominate in, passing a few votes on to Brisc, but otherwise failing to lift anybody else down ballot who didn’t have a voter base of their own on which to depend. (The ballot is in the comments of this post if you are interested.)
Congrats to all the winners. I will link the dev blog with the voting data once it is posted.
Addendum: Dev blog with the voting data is now available.
