Editor’s Update: at the time of publishing, CSM voting was impossible due to technical issues with the website. This has now been resolved. I implore everyone reading to cast their vote(s), and do it as soon as possible.
CCP has opened voting for CSM 16 today; votes can be cast on the voting site published by CCP. Voting will remain open for one week and closes at 11:00 UTC on the 15th of June. Every active Omega account that is at least 60 days old can cast a vote, so vote early, and (if you have multiple Omega accounts) vote often!
47 candidates met CCP’s requirements to compete for the 10 seats on the council. Players vote by submitting a ranked list of 10 candidates that they would like to see elected. Results are expected to be announced shortly after voting closes.
