Casper has been delayed until 2019-2020. In order to keep Ethereum functioning normally under proof-of-work, the difficulty bomb needs to be pushed back. The best time to do this is the scheduled Constantinople hard fork coming up shortly. There are a number of proposals for pushing back the difficulty bomb, this coin vote is to indicate which proposal the community supports most strongly.
Note: the difficulty bomb code enforces regular hard forks while Ethereum operates under proof-of-work. Removing the difficulty bomb entirely would enable miners to continue with the current chain forever.
