Sasquan, the 2015 Worldcon, gained another 494 members between April 23 and May 6 and, continuing a trend, nearly 80% of the newcomers are supporting members.
The con now has a total of 8,510 members, including 3,590 attending and 4,581 supporting.
A $40 supporting membership is the minimum requirement to become eligible as a voter in 2017 site selection or to vote on the winners of the Hugo Awards.
Sasquan has long since shattered LonCon 3’s record number of supporting members, which was 2,882 (according to information distributed at Smofcon 32).
