    As has become a custom, CCP Hellmar, CCP’s CEO, just announced the election results for the 8th Council of Stellar Management (CSM8) during the CCP Presents Keynote in Reykjavik during Fanfest 2013. This election was an exhilarating experience and the candidates were hard at work until the final minutes of the election getting those last few votes.
    This is the first CSM election where the Single Transferrable Vote (STV) has been used. Due to this fact, the order of the elected members below is alphabetical, as all members received the necessary amount (no more, no less) of votes to get onto the council.
    So, the first order of the newly elected council will be to elect, amongst themselves, a Chairman, a Vice-chairman, a Secretary and a vice-secretary.
    The 14 members of the 8th Council of Stellar Management are:
    - Ali Aras
    - Chitsa Jason
    - James Arget
    - Kesper North
    - Korvin
    - Malcanis
    - Mangala Solaris
    - Mike Azariah
    - mynnna
    - progodlegend
    - Ripard Teg
    - Sala Cameron
    - Sort Dragon
    - Trebor Daehdoow
    Congratulations to the elected delegates . The 8th CSM will take office on Friday the 3rd of May.

    Voter Demographics
    During the election 49702 votes were cast by eligible voters. The total number of votes cast was lower than last year (CSM7 - 59109 votes), but higher than the years before.
    This drop in voting has provided us with a new perspective on CSM interest from the playerbase. CSM7 was effectively the first ‘peace-time’ council, and with a deeper involvement in EVE’s development the friction witnessed in the past between the CSM and CCP is largely gone. It is possible that this lack of controversy has caused the CSM elections to be less of a hot button issue or a less discussed topic. It is also a fact that a larger portion of the older players participate in the election, which means that newer players are not as CSM aware as they could be. These are problems that we look forward to tackling during the term of CSM8.
    The average age of users who voted was 33 years, an increase from 32 last election. The average age of an account that votes was 3.2 years, up from 2.89 years from last election.
