Election

From Blaseball Wiki

Elections are the process by which Blaseball fans may enact change. The effects of the electoral process can be felt by players and fans alike, with consequences ranging from personal Arm Cannons to the wrath of the gods. The Glossary defines it as "A formal group decision-making process by which Fans spend Votes in exchange for divine favor."

The cycle ends and voting is closed on Sunday, the Blaseball Gods Day, at 12 PM PST. At that time the results of that Election are revealed, displaying the two chosen Decrees and the winners of all the Gods' Blessings. All Election results can be seen on each Season page.
