Worldcon 76 will conduct the elections to select the site of the 2020 Worldcon and the 2019 North American Science Fiction Convention (NASFiC). To vote in either of these elections, you must be an attending or supporting member of Worldcon 76. At the time you vote, you will pay an additional amount called the Advance Supporting Membership fee, which is a supporting membership in the Worldcon or NASFiC, regardless of which site wins the election. This money goes to the winning Worldcon or NASFiC bid regardless of who wins or how you voted.

Paper site selection ballots were mailed in Progress Report 3 to those members who requested paper publications. You can download PDFs of the site selection ballots below.
