Worldcon 75 says the number of Hugo nominating votes this year will be the second-highest total ever. The record of 4,032 was set last year by MidAmeriCon.
Looks like we have the second highest participation ever in Hugo nominations! ?

That means Helsinki’s number is higher than Sasquan’s figure of 2,122.
Not that we’re spoiled or anything, but this ends at eight the string of consecutive years in which a new voter participation record was set.
