SFWA elections

I voted in my first ever SFWA election today. The Presidential, Vice-Presidential and Secretary positions were running unopposed and regardless, I would have voted for John Scalzi, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Robert J. Howe anyway. I think all three have done an excellent job improving SFWA in several noticeable way since they have taken office.

The vote is done via paper ballots and perhaps in the future the election could be done electronically (we are, after all, the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America). Regardless, I’m glad I had the opportunity to vote this time, if for no other reason than to acknowledge the good work done by John, Mary and Bob.

  1. Thanks for the vote!

    Massachusetts, where we are currently incorporated, requires paper ballots. Annoying. This is just one of the reasons we want to reincorporate in California. When the new bylaws come around, I hope you’ll vote in that too.
