E Pluribus Hugo Submitted

The complicated proposal for changing the Hugo Award nominating system to a system whose proponents say is less susceptible to any forms of "slate" voting has been submitted to the WSFS Business Meeting and is available on this year's New Business page under the title "E Pluribus Hugo."

As presiding officer, I obviously won't take a stance on the proposal; however, its very complexity requires me to be concerned about how to handle it technically at the Business Meeting. It will probably depend on how much more business gets submitted. It's proposals like this that lead me to planning for WSFS to hold a Sunday (final day) business meeting for the first time since 1992.
