2018 Hugo Awards Final Ballot Voting is Now Open


The final ballot for the 2018 Hugo Awards, 1943 Retrospective Hugo Awards, WSFS Award for Best Young Adult Book, and John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer opened on May 3, 2018. The Final Hugo Award Ballot includes the finalists selected by the members of the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Worldcons through the nominating process earlier in 2018. Members can vote from the Worldcon 76 website at http://www.worldcon76.org/hugos.

In order to vote for the Hugo Awards, you must have your electronic PIN. Members previously received their PINs in the nomination phase. Worldcon 76 will send e-mail to all members who have registered their e-mail with the convention within a week of the opening of voting. You can also write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to recover your voting information if you do not know it.

Alternatively, you can download a PDF of the paper version of the Hugo Final Ballot and send it by postal mail. Paper ballots will also be included in Worldcon 76 Progress Report 3, scheduled for mailing in late May 2018.

Worldcon 76 is preparing a Hugo Voter Packet of finalists for the 2018/1943 Hugo Awards to provide to members. This packet includes works shortlisted for the final ballot as provided by the rights holders for those members of Worldcon 76 to evaluate. Works appear in the Hugo Voter Packet by the generosity of the rights holders. Worldcon 76 cannot guarantee the availability of any given finalist work to appear in the Hugo Voter Packet. Further information about the Hugo Voter Packet will be announced in May 2018 when it is available, and Worldcon 76 will contact all of its eligible members when the packet is available.

Voting for the 2018/1943 Hugo Awards will be open through July 31, 2018. Ballots must be received (not postmarked) by that date. Any person who joins Worldcon 76 as either a supporting or attending member by the end of July 2018 may vote on the Hugo Awards. Worldcon 76 encourages those persons who want to become a member of the convention to do so sooner, not later, and to not wait until the deadline. See the Worldcon 76 membership page at http://www.worldcon76.org/membership for more information about joining Worldcon 76.
