Our ballot is now live! BSFA members who wish to send advance votes, can do so here.
March 21st even later update: the form is back in action.
MARCH 21st UPDATE: Apologies, the form got broken and we couldn’t fix it and that’s why it has disappeared. If members need to send advance votes, you can scan in the PDF form below and email it to us, or just write down your vote in the body of an email – email will reach us for sure! the address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course, some people may not be able to email and won’t be able to attend Eastercon and as the booklet has only just arrived, those people will have noticed they have missed the postal deadline we gave. We don’t want to disenfranchise you. If you would like to send your vote via snail mail it would most likely not reach the administrator’s address in time, so you can send instead to this address. Please make sure we get it before Saturday 26th:
C/O MANCUNICON (25-28 MARCH)
- Please remember to include your BSFA membership number and full name written in block capitals, or printed, so it’s nice and clear. (This is on the envelope of your latest mailing).
- And don’t panic – if you are going to Eastercon you will be able to hand us your ballot there. We have ballots in the welcome packs and some more on the BSFA desk. Deadline for votes at the convention is Midday/noon on Saturday 26th March.
How to Vote: Mark your choices in each category in order of preference: ‘1’ for first place, ‘2’ for second place, etc.
You are not required to rank all the nominees in any category.
If you decide not to vote in a given category, leave it blank.
Advance electronic votes must be received by midnight Friday 25th.
