Utah in 2014 received a majority of the votes cast in the first round of site selection balloting and therefore is elected to host Westercon 67.
The results in detail follow. Only one ballot was cast on Thursday, so the results for the first two days were combined in the totals.
|Site||July 5-6||July 7||Total|
|Utah in 2014||39||20||59|
|None of the Above||1||0||1|
|Total With Preference||48||23||71|
|Needed to Elect (Majority)||36|
|Total Ballots Cast||49||26||75|
The polls closed at 5 PM Saturday. Ballot-counting was complete and the results declared official at 5:28 PM. Because site selection balloting produced a definitive result, there will not be a Site Selection Business Meeting on Sunday at Westercon 65 in Seattle.
The 2014 Westercon will be Thursday, July 3 through Sunday, July 6, 2014 at the Marriott Downtown at City Creek, Salt Lake City, Utah. Their Guests of Honor will be Cory Doctorow, the Writing Excuses team (Mary Robinette Kowal, Brandon Sanderson, Howard Tayler, and Dan Wells), and Christopher J. Garcia. Memberships will initially be $50 attending and $25 supporting. If you voted and pre-supported, you are automatically an attending member. If you voted but did not pre-support, you can convert to attending for $25. Pre-supporters who did not vote can convert to attending for $30. The convention’s website is www.utahwestercon.org.
