Ukraine has done great this year! Your work clearly paid off, currently 11.74% of the eligible users on ukWiki have voted (making it one of the highest % wikis, and the highest if you only count medium/large wikis some of the smaller ones get an advantage when % is factored in). It also accounts for 2.58% of the total votes compared to less then 1% (.99%) of the whole electorate.
