Null bloc votes, as identified by Two Step: 9823+10957+5999 = 26799, 53.9% of the votes

Null bloc candidates: Five (Myself, Kesper, Sort, Sala and Progodlegend), which is about 35% of the council. I suppose you could count Malcanis as well, as the HBC ballot was instrumental in electing him and he is technically part of the bloc, but even that's only 42%.

And the "Trebor" Bloc has 51% of the vote, so STV was clearly designed to prevent nullsec candidates from getting elected.

My independent Wright-STV script has a mode that generates a more verbose output. Here are the results for the 14-seat and 2-seat elections.

My results confirm those of CCP Veritas' script.

In an STV-1 election (just for fun, it's completely irrelevant to this election) Mynnna beats Ripard by only 89 votes.

So many graphs.

For the record, I voted a full ticket. My #1 (Cipreh) didn't make it, but I'm pretty happy with the voting results. A good balance of players from different backgrounds, and wormholers definitely got in.

Let's see some cool ****, CSM8.

There were some questions on twitter about what order people were elected. There are a number of ways to compute this, one way is to run the election for 1 seat, then 2, then 3, etc. If you do that, you get this order:

1) mynnna
2) Ripard Teg
3) Mangala Solaris
4) Sort Dragon
5) Chitsa Jason
6) Trebor Daehdoow
7) Ali Aras
8) Kesper North
9) progodlegend
10) James Arget
11) Korvin
12) Sala Cameron
13) Malcanis
14) Mike Azariah

Malcanis was a double-agent for the Evil CSM Cabal of Evil. Twisted

The ECCE had 11 members: Korvin, Malcanis, Ali Aras, corebloodbrothers, James Arget, Mangala Solaris, Roc Wieler, Mike Azariah, Nathan Jameson, Ripard Teg and myself. We all worked cooperatively to cross-support each other and get out the vote, and 8 of the 11 were elected.

I had expected the ECCE to grab 6 seats, with a good chance of 7. But reduced nullsec turnout, especially in the HBC, gave us an extra seat.

In the end, I think STV did everything I hoped it would. It delivered a diverse CSM, full of knowledgeable, professional worker-bees. We're already up and running in our private Skype channel, and getting connected to CCP.

A 15 person CSM:
"Ali Aras"
"Banlish"
"Chitsa Jason"
"James Arget"
"Kesper North"
"Korvin"
"Malcanis"
"Mangala Solaris"
"Mike Azariah"
"mynnna"
"progodlegend"
"Ripard Teg"
"Sala Cameron"
"Sort Dragon"
"Trebor Daehdoow"

At 16:
"Ali Aras"
"Chitsa Jason"
"James Arget"
"Kaleb Rysode"
"Kesper North"
"Korvin"
"Malcanis"
"Mangala Solaris"
"Mike Azariah"
"mynnna"
"Nathan Jameson"
"progodlegend"
"Ripard Teg"
"Sala Cameron"
"Sort Dragon"
"Trebor Daehdoow"

at 17:
"Ali Aras"
"Banlish"
"Chitsa Jason"
"James Arget"
"Kaleb Rysode"
"Kesper North"
"Korvin"
"Malcanis"
"Mangala Solaris"
"Mike Azariah"
"mynnna"
"Nathan Jameson"
"progodlegend"
"Ripard Teg"
"Sala Cameron"
"Sort Dragon"
"Trebor Daehdoow"

A 20 member CSM is my personal favorite:
"Ali Aras"
"Banlish"
"Chitsa Jason"
"Greene Lee"
"James Arget"
"Kaleb Rysode"
"Kesper North"
"Korvin"
"Malcanis"
"Mangala Solaris"
"Mike Azariah"
"mynnna"
"Nathan Jameson"
"progodlegend"
"Psychotic Monk"
"Ripard Teg"
"Sala Cameron"
"Sort Dragon"
"Steve Ronuken"
"Trebor Daehdoow"


In case anyone is wondering why the numbers don't match the elimination order of the 14 seat CSM, it's because those block votes become more useful when they need fewer vote to elect someone to a position. So more of their votes shift.

Woo! CSM XI!

Is it time to start talking about CCP and CSM7 using STV to rig the election against nullsec candidates?

well you did try with that first iteration (the "throw out overvotes" one), though trebor pretty much owned up to doing that

I'm curious to what extent that low HBC vote could have been best corrected by improved get out the vote effort and to what extent it could have been best improved by somehow making that coalition more cohesive (especially considering recent events...) Of course these factors probably overlap, but vOv. Also not commenting myself as I don't have nearly enough experience with the HBC entities and their relations at the time of the election to make even vaguely intelligent speculation.

Nice to know

Out of curiosity has anyone run the base numbers through to see what the council would have looked liked using FPTP?

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

You can't, as voting patterns would have been much different.

You can do this using the initial votes -- just look at the starting numbers at http://dontshootx.com/auditLog.txt .

For those who don't wanna click the link, it'd be:

mynnna
Ripard Teg
Sort Dragon
Mangala Solaris
progodlegend
Ali Aras
Korvin
Trebor Daehdoow
Mike Azariah
Greene Lee
Chitsa Jason
James Arget
Nathan Jameson
Sala Cameron

On the other hand, that's with a swap in the middle -- people's election and GOTV strategies likely would have been wildly different in a non-STV election. I'm working on my own long post about what kind of voters voted, for whom, and with what completeness-of-ballot, but it has to wait for me to finish my actual RL stuff first ;-)

Possibly, but it is nice to see, and a persons preferred candidate should be in their first place. Unless they were voting like sheep of course.

No, you don't really get it: it's in FPTP that strategic voting is so important, not in STV.
