Voting Response

Discounting a handful of duplicate/repeat voters, no less than 250 votes have been received in this year’s Locus Poll and Survey by this morning. Last year it took a full month to accumulate that many. Obviously the various notices online, those mentioned earlier plus Cory Doctorow at Boing Boing and Neil Gaiman on his blog and no doubt others, bought in a lot web voters. A quick tabulation of those 250 ballots shows only about 40 — 16% — indicating they’re subscribers to Locus Magazine; if I recall correctly in previously years the percentage is around 50% by the end of the voting period, and I expect this year’s results to move in that direction by the time voting ends. (Voters like me have some remedial reading to do before we’re ready to cast our ballots, e.g.)
