Online Hugo Voting Begins

Anticipation, the 2009 Worldcon in Montreal, has opened online Hugo Awards voting here. Membership and PIN numbers are necessary.

All votes, whether cast by mail or electronically, must be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on July 3.

The committee further requires that all mail-in ballots must be postmarked by June 26.

Curiously, Anticipation’s press release misstates that these are the “2008 Hugo Awards” — the online ballot correctly identifies them as the 2009 Hugo Awards.

Full press release follows the jump.

One more note: Anticipation members have access to the Hugo Voters Packet organized by John Scalzi, a heroic effort that now boasts all the Hugo nominees for Novella, Novelette, Short Story, and all the nominees for the Campbell Award. One more nominated fanzine now is represented, with the addition of Challenger.

Update 05/21/2009: Corrected reference to nominated fanzines in packet.

  1. Not all the fanzines are represented in the package. Banana Wings has not been included.
