CIS Top 10 voters are NOT told how to vote. They're all given the same weekly stats package, which include that week's results, updated standings, and updated team-by-team results (including non-conference and exhibition games). Voters have to do their own research if they want to read game capsules (such as grouped on the CIS website) or check box scores online to see if one team had a huge shot discrepancy over another.

I think it is safe to assume that some voters take reputation/recent history more into account while others appear to focus on what happened last week. Unfortunately some voters appear to look only at the standings and not at who-beat-whom, and where.
