Westercon 69 Day 4: Site Selection Details

From the Sunday edition of the Westercon newsletter, The Westerconian, we get the details on the selection of the Denver-area bid to host the 2018 Westercon:

Denver in 2018: 68
Graton CA (write-in): 1
None of the Above: 2
Spoiled: 1

Total Ballots Cast: 72
Needed to Elect (majority): 37

Denver in 2018 thus won on the first ballot and will host Westercon 71.

It appears that the events of 2011 frightened off the usual crowd of creative write-in bids. Even Tonopah didn't get any votes this year.
