Site Selection Process

In order to vote in Site Selection, you must be an Attending or Supporting Member in MidAmeriCon II and pay the Advanced Supporting Membership fee for each election. This process also makes you a Supporting Member of the winning bid’s convention. Ballots and links for those wishing to pay the Advanced Supporting Membership fee by credit card are below. Please note that Firefox is not supported by our payment gateway. We apologize for the inconvenience.

While the WSFS Constitution now allows electronic Site Selection balloting, it also requires that the current Worldcon Committee and all bidding committees agree that electronic balloting will be allowed. The MidAmeriCon committee believes that there are several technical issues associated with electronic balloting which have not yet been solved, and therefore MidAmeriCon II is opting out of electronic Site Selection voting in 2016. The Site Selection Administrator and staff will, per the Constitution, be accepting only paper ballots either completed on site, mailed, or hand delivered, and will not accept ballots via any electronic means.

The site of the World Science Fiction Convention (“Worldcon”) is determined two years in advance by a vote of the current Worldcon’s membership. In addition, if a Worldcon is to be held outside North America (as is the case in 2017, when Worldcon 75 will be held in Helsinki, Finland), the site for a North American Science Fiction Convention (“NASFiC”) is determined by a vote one year in advance.

Site Selection Hours during convention:
Wednesday: 1:00pm to 6:00pm
Thursday: 10:00am to 6:00pm
Friday: 10:00am to 6:00pm
