The DDT48 General Election has rolled round once again. DDT and Union fans will get their chance to vote for who they think should be a part of a special Korakuen Hall show on 25th September. The reward for whoever wins the election is a KO-D Openweight Title shot on the 25th plus a grand case prize. Last year it was the top 18 wrestlers who qualified for the Korakuen show but the cut off for this year has not been revealed yet. Last year’s winner Danshoku Dino leads the pack of 48 nominees all hoping to fare well enough in the popularity contest to be part of the grand finale. You never know who will win over the public’s affection. Last year saw Hikaru Sato finish second place, a moment that arguably sparked off his run that led to a KO-D Title reign several months later. Meanwhile Union’s
old hag cutie idol Cherry was overwhelmed with emotion when it was announced she finished in third place. There are some fresh faces on the ballot this year to go along with the usual gang. So let’s see how the 2011 elections will go.
Voting can only take place at open polls that will be held during DDT and UNION shows throughout August and September. They will be located at the following schedule. Attendees will be given one vote for every 2000円 they spend at the merchandise table. Voting ballots will also be sent out to fans who order products from DDT’s online store, again one vote for every 2000円 spent, excluding the costs for postage and packaging. The voting period will end on 26th September and mailed votes must be received before that date to be included in the official count.
