With only one day remaining in the voting period, fewer than 500 (of the 1000+ DDs) have bothered to vote?

Is such a low participation percentage typical?

I was thinking it was progressing rather well, given there are still about five days left. It is, at a minimum, nice to see that the issue won't just be decided by a handful of advocates (regardless of their position).

You mean like in most other distributions, say Slackware, huh? :-)
Kidding aside this sure is way better
(I like the joke, but it is really just that: a joke. Perhaps a stupid one).

Still convinced the very best is to vote with the feet to put some pressure on Debian, to show that *that* is not what one has in mind when thinking of Debian. That will make them think, and only that (replacing systemd with sysv and pinning *systemd* including the libs *and* installing popularity-contest is another option, less strong and way too much work, imho).
Give me convenience or give me death.
