Senbatsu Election 2010 Results

July 7, 2010

The Senbatsu Election is a form of “poll” which determines the members who will be featuring in the next single. This years voting tickets for the poll are included in their 16th single – Ponytail to Shushu.

Only the top 21 members in the election will be featured on their next single which is said to be released in August; the remaining 19 girls will be part of the B-Side track for their new single.

Yuko Oshima took first place gaining more votes over Maeda Atsuko, which was a surprise to many as Atsuko was known for being the “face” of AKB48. Based on the early and mid results, Atsuko was expected to claim the first position again this year, that however did not happen.
