Dublin 2019 Opens Hugo, Retro-Hugo, and Site Selection Voting

Online ballots for the 2019 Hugo Awards and 1944 Retro Hugo Awards are now available and open for voting. Dublin 2019 also has opened Site Selection voting for the location of Worldcon in 2021.

2019 HUGO AND 1944 RETRO HUGO VOTING.  Members of Dublin 2019: An Irish Worldcon are eligible to choose the winners of the Hugo Awards, the John W Campbell Award for Best New Writer, and the Lodestar Award for Best Young Adult Book for 2019; and also the Retrospective Hugo Awards for 1944.

Online voting is now enabled for the Hugos and Retro Hugos, though you can also vote via a paper ballot. Members have been emailed personalized links for use in voting.

The deadline for voting is Wednesday 31 July 2019 at 11:59pm Pacific Daylight Time (2:59 am Eastern Daylight Time, 07:59 Irish time, all on 1 August).

Voters can make additions or changes to their ballots as often as they like up until the deadline. A copy of their current ballot will be emailed to them 30 minutes after they finish modifying it.

2021 SITE SELECTION. Dublin 2019 also has opened voting for the 2021 Worldcon site.  Washington, D.C. is the only declared bid on the ballot.

The Site Selection Administrator and staff will be accepting only paper ballots either completed on site, mailed, or hand-delivered, and will not accept ballots via any electronic means.

To vote:

(1) You must be a Full Attending, Young Adult, First Worldcon, or Supporting Member of Dublin 2019; and

(2) You must also pay an Advance Supporting Membership fee of €40, which goes to the winning bid. This process also makes you a Supporting Member of the winning bid’s convention.

If you mail your ballot to the address in the USA (but only then) you may pay your voting fee with a personal cheque in U.S. funds ($45), payable to “Dublin 2019”. NO CHEQUES are accepted to the address in Ireland or at this year’s Worldcon in Dublin.

To pay your Advance Supporting Membership fee online, sign in to our member services site at api.dublin2019.com and click on “Buy a site selection token”. If you are signed in, this direct link will also take you there

There will also be onsite voting at Dublin 2019, see their website for the schedule.

  1. Congratulations to the Hugo Administrators on what I think is the best Hugo user interface yet! It took no time at all to log in, find the materials I hadn’t already read, and vote.
