CoNZealand Opens
Online Hugo Voting

The 2020 Worldcon, CoNZealand, today opened online voting for the Hugo Awards, the Lodestar and Astounding Awards, and the 1945 Retrospective Hugo Awards.

Due to the delay the committee has extended the voting deadline to Wednesday, 22 July 2020 at 23:59 Pacific (Thursday, 23 July 2020 at 18:59 New Zealand Time).

CoNZealand members can access their ballots by visiting https://members.conzealand.nz/, logging in, and clicking on “My Memberships.” Instructions for voting are included with the ballots.

  1. Excellent!
    Note: The “vote for this category” button does not give any feedback, but it does save.

  2. Well, it turns darker and you are sent an email after you are locked out, so there is some kind of feedback.

  3. Yay! Must have happened sometime after I went to bed last night. Glad to hear it’s good to go since the PDF ballot unhelpfully fills in the same rank for every finalist in every category.

    Whoops! Sorry about that…we’ve fixed that now! ?

  5. I voted!

    (Also, I opened the cover to one of the last books I have to read, Ian McDonald’s Luna: New Moon, to find a previous reader has written on the very first page: BORING. This probably does not bode well.)

  6. Bonnie McDaniel: I opened the cover to one of the last books I have to read, Ian McDonald’s Luna: New Moon, to find a previous reader has written on the very first page: BORING. This probably does not bode well.

    It’s a decent book, but I wasn’t raving about it (I gave it 3.5 stars out of 5). It’s about colonies on the Moon being run by 5 wealthy and powerful “mafia” families, and the interactions amongst their members, and between their members and the rest of the poor hoi polloi who are trying to eke out an existence on the Moon. I was a bit befuddled by it mustering enough nominations to make the ballot, since I didn’t find it a particularly riveting or innovative series.

    I tried three times and gave up. In my case, it didn’t help that I really didn’t like the main narrator in the audio version.
