A Reminder to SFWAns

Jim Macdonald reminds all SFWAns that their ballots for officer elections must be received by the 19th of April, which means that sending in the mail, oh, NOW, might be a good idea. Also, it might be a good idea to stick another stamp on the envelope, because the ballot package is just on the weight border of needing another one.

I concur with both of these. This election is actually important, folks, for reasons I’ve already amply essayed previously. It’d be a shame to have SFWA led by an incompetent because the membership couldn’t rouse itself to vote (if it were to be led by an incompetent because people roused themselves to vote, and voted for the incompetent, that would be a shame, too, but I sincerely believe that won’t be the case).

Those of you who aren’t SFWA members can still light votive candles, chuck pennies into fountains, cross your fingers and otherwise hope that SFWAns get their ballots in and make the right choices overall. Consider it your very easy duty to science fiction literature.

  1. I paid and sent my papers a few weeks ago but I still haven’t gotten a response. I really really want to vote, but it doesn’t look like I’ll get approved and have the papers mailed to me in time.

  2. This is probably a dumb questions, but for those of us who are not SFWA members and are waiting for the outcome of this election to decide whether to join, when and where should we look to find out the result? (Of course, if you do the shout out here, that solves it for me. :-)

    Kind of like the rest of the world did in the last US Presidential election?

    (Certainly worked out well then…)
