Something to keep in mind —
To vote on the 2018 Hugo finalists you must be a member of the 2018 Worldcon in San Jose before the voting deadline.
To nominate for the 2018 Hugos, you can become eligible in any of the following ways:
- Have been a supporting or attending member of Worldcon 75 (Helsinki, August 2017)
- Register as a supporting or attending member of the 2018 World Science Fiction Convention, Worldcon 76 in San Jose by December 31, 2017.. (This also qualifies you to vote on the final ballot.)
- Register as a supporting or attending member of the 2019 World Science Fiction Convention, Dublin 2019: An Irish Worldcon by December 31, 2017.
The nominations will open in early 2018, and the final ballot will come out a couple months after that.
Eligibility to nominate is time sensitive, as Worldcon 76 says in its press release today: “Don’t miss your chance to nominate for the Hugos! Register as a member before December 31, 2017!”
