No Excuses - Get Out and Vote

Voting in the 2008 Locus Poll & Survey is free and is open until April 15. You don't need to be a subscriber to Locus. You don't need to be a member of any convention. You don't have to pay any money at all. You don't even have to pick from among the works on the drop-down boxes. You can vote for any work published last year.

I have taken to asking most people who complain about how unfair it is that they have to pay absurdly large amounts of money to vote on the Hugo Awards whether or not they have voted on the Locus Awards. Most of them have not. They should do so. The Locus Awards may not be the Hugos, but they have a decent amount of respect within the field.

Why yes, I just cast my ballot this afternoon. How did you guess that?
