Theres a CSM Voting Stats thread at the top of the Jita Corner section, however its only for the total votes not for individual candidates.

Honestly I would absolutely LOVE if Hans won the chairmanship, It would mean that low-sec would have a higher chance of getting the love it needs, since we all have some confidence that Hans will make the top 7. But the campaign is not over, the null-sec bloc candidates have almost no need to campaign for their votes, Hans needs to spread his message to all corners of Empire so as to gather all the support he can.

So help him out, still plenty of time left on the election, remind your friends(and maybe your enemies) who best to vote for, post the forum link in local when your passing through, every bit helps. Vote for Hans and bring some stability to the CSM, don't let decisions about Empire be made by people who have no idea what the **** their talking about.

VOTE!

Sticky thread in this forum (should have been mirrored in General Disc. to catch non/late-voters if you ask me).

Bottom line is that it looks like this year will have 11-12k more votes cost than last year .. still very anemic. Forced voting is the way to go, forcing people to take a stand is the only way! Cut training time in half for six months if an eligible account doesn't vote (abstaining is a valid vote now so make it happen)! Lol

The Empress demands her envoy/puppet on the council, vote for the Minnie! Vote Hans! God Wills It!

A ~1.2x annual increase is actually pretty good.

Whilst encouraging to see an increase it still isnt anything like a serious mandate for the CSM, not that that is really a serious issue for CSM candidates as it's more simply a case of getting a voice. However until we see how the votes are comprised I dont want to assume its a nice to see reduction in the apathy issue as the increase could also accomodate votes that are simply attributable to abstentions, hope not however.

But seeing as we are in Hans thread, I would hope that a number of FW, Empire and any other players are aware of the CSM and have voted responsibly. Blink

Well, the way I figure, the Empire (and its alleged evils Smile) is the only reason that most of the insurgents exist and it is such a dominant topic in any discussion/debate with said insurgents that they are a hairbreadth from submitting body and soul if only to get a semblance of balance in their conflicted minds ..

Vote Hans for RP shenanigans 23/7!

Voting is primarily done by 'matured' accounts, ie. by people who have a vested interest in and/or have decided to stick with Eve. Taken together with number of accounts added to Eve in the time period and the increase is pretty much 'null' .. those +10k votes are only 2-3 pct of the the population after all and <15 pct participation is not exactly stellar, we need to make the masses understand/embrace that Internet Spaceships is SrsBusiness™ Big smile

Call Vote Hans for a goooood time!

HANS!!!!!

I agree I am bugging everyone i know to Vote Hans Jagerblitzen for CSM7.

In fact my standard practice when flying thru space is to make a statement in every system in local "Vote Hans Jagerblitzen CSM7, the candidate that has a plan to improve Eve making it more profitable and more fun!"

When i am mining or in a mission hub I try to get into convo's on local on why people should Vote Hans Jagerblitzen for CSM7.

With some constant effort and talking to everyone who will talk back I believe we can make this happen for Hans, I am actively working for it and I encourage/ hope more employ these easy simple methods to get more players to Vote Hans Jagerblitzen CSM7 Chairman!

I don't think you can handwave away an extra ten thousand participants quite so facilely. Yes it would be better if even mote players voted, but its a bit eyorish to dismiss such a big improvement just because it was based on a poor starting point.

More to do with don't want to assume anything and start chiming off with interpretation that may end up not being true.

When you consider that CCP have placed a voting option as a message on the front of the screen it might simply be a valid option that players choose to abstain in the hope to get rid of the message? That's me being cynical however.

Some might be random of course, I've seen posts in Amarr about people who selected candidates from the top of the list without even bothering to look at any details as a result. That of course could be Hub Troll humour however and certainly wasn't in any way in the 1000's of course.

Hopefully your right and the people who are interested will respond with a postive correlation to genuine interest. I have to concede it might be more of a sensible occams razor if it involves some effort. Blink

I'm predominantly a High Sec player atm and voted for Hans.

I think given his manifesto and the focus CCP will be taking for the next term of the CSM even though Hans is more than capable in helping the above associated groups you mentioned his designs for EvE are further reaching than this.

I'm predominantly a 0.0 player and I voted for Hans, because if there's one thing that the last 10 years have shown without a shadow of the doubt, it's that you can't "Fix" 0.0 without "fixing" empire too (and vice versa). If half the game is broken, it's all broken. Empire needs 0.0 to work properly; 0.0 needs Empire to work properly.

The players and the CSM have successfully energized CCP into looking at 0.0 again; now we need to get them to take a good long look at empire too.

Read https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=26049 for my thoughts on those lines, to which Hans was good enough to spend his time discussing and contributing to in an extremely constructive way.

Thanks for all the encouragement everyone! It's awesome to keep hearing so much support coming in.

I just wanted to remind everyone there is just a couple days left in the polls here, I need all of your help getting people to the polls, there will be a lot of last minute voters so NOW is the perfect time to hit the streets with my message again!

Here is my direct voting link you can share with your friends and chat channels in-game as you travel about:

http://community.eveonline.com/council/voting/Vote.asp?c=450

It is CRITICAL that we continue to get this link up and shared in-game as much as possible, THAT is where the votes are going to come from here in the final hour. I'll be doing some travelling and stumping myself, but I need your help to act as a "street team" during the last legs of the race.

Anything you can do to get people to the polls, regardless of who they vote for, would be awesome. Remind voters even if they don't want to vote for me its still important that their voices get heard. The bloc votes have been cast already - this is where we can catch up and pull ahead by putting our noses to the grindstone.

Good luck everyone, and thanks again for all that you've done to keep this campaign alive! I couldn't have come this far without the help of each and every one of you. Only a couple more days of hard work to go, and we can all rest and party this weekend.

Almost, just a couple hours left to vote! Than we can all take a break and celebrate.

Thanks again to EVERYONE who has pitched in to make this an amazing campaign. My success, should the results be favorable, will be as much a reflection of the effort YOU have put in to support me throughout these last couple of months. I couldn't have done it myself!

This has been an incredible amount of fun, and I've learned more about the game in two months from talking with voters than I have in the last year of just playing EVE. Every one of you has taught me something - either about EVE, or about myself, and this has been a completely worthwhile experience, win or lose.

I look forward to the weekend, I hope many of you make it over to Fan Fest and have a great time! I'll be watching the HD stream the whole way.

I also hope many of you will come to EVE Vegas this year, I'm planning on going, and it would be a great pleasure to meet all of that I've gotten to know the last few months, in person and over some drinks!

Best of luck to the other candidates as well, It'll be an honor serving alongside you this coming year should I be elected. There's a lot of hard work ahead! Let's get to it!

Good luck Hans, well run campaign, remember to try the lamb sub at Nonni's when you get to Iceland. It is the real reason that CSM members keep running for reelection!

So my guess... Hans in the 4th spot......
