The mods don't have any relevant statistics about page views that you don't have. The election tag shows that even to date none of the meta threads about the election accumulated more than 103 views. Actually, 96 voters out of 251 eligible is a relatively large proportion for elections on SE. Look at some of the statistics available by links through Yi Jiang's beautiful page:
GIS: 251 voters were eligible, 124 visited the election, and 96 voted (38%)
Math: 394 voters were eligible, 174 voted (44%)
Super User: 4,566 voters were eligible, 505 visited the election, and 213 voted (5%)
Programmers: 1,930 voters were eligible, 413 visited the election, and 229 voted (12%)
TCS: 261 voters were eligible, 129 visited the election, and 104 voted (40%)
Gaming: 809 voters were eligible, 177 visited the election, and 129 voted (16%)
Pro Webmasters: 331 voters were eligible, 48 visited the election, and 36 voted (11%)
Photography: 429 voters were eligible, 97 visited the election, and 63 voted (15%)
Those are just the most recent ones--check the others if you wish. Given the numbers voting, the highest rates--44%, 40%, and 38% (ours)--are statistically indistinguishable and hugely greater than the other voting rates quoted here. We also have a high rate of voting among those who visited the election page.
There won't ever be a definitive interpretation of any election statistics, but my take was that members of this GIS community are fairly well engaged, we had a good number of moderator candidates offering a spectrum of experiences and views, we have some important but not critical issues to deal with, and we're collaborating in a friendly environment that was established and ably cultivated by our pro tem mods, especially @Matt Wilkie and @SCW. I believe all these factors contributed to our high voting turnout. It is humbling to be among those chosen. I hope that all of you will be quick to let us (the new mods) know how we can keep the site working well for you and how to improve it, but please let's not create issues where none exist.
