CSM8 Final Ballot and Pre-Election Results
The Pre-elections for the 8th Council of Stellar Management (CSM) have closed. This is the first year we have done a pre-election like this and we are proud to say that far more candidates proved themselves qualified then we would have ever thought. Candidates required a minimum of 200 Endorsements to be included in the Final Ballot for the CSM8 Elections which begin tomorrow. Here are the results:

With over 16,000 endorsements and 31 candidates successfully qualifying for the full election, we are in for a fast paced and exciting election period. While these results may be helpful for looking into which candidates you might want to investigate further, I would caution that they potentially have no bearing on the full election. As is always true in an STV election, you should always vote based on your own preference for candidates, not on what you think other people will vote.
