John Hertz Is 2010 DUFF Winner

John Hertz of Los Angeles has been voted the Down Under Fan Fund delegate to the 2010 Worldcon in Australia. 

North American DUFF Administrators Steve and Sue Francis said, “It required all 4 rounds of vote redistribution to determine the winner.”

Hertz began the runoff with a clear plurality, 48 first-place votes out of 131 cast, and maintained a substantial lead until the automatic runoff produced a majority.  The voting statistics are given in the Francis’ report: 2010 DUFF Results (PDF file).
