When you cast your Hugo Award ballot online in the next 11 hours (27 minutes 11 seconds as I typed each of the numbers), remember to REVIEW and SUBMIT the confirmation page that comes up after you finish filling out your ballot.

Seeing that confirmation page reminded of my last-minute panic earlier this year when I failed to confirm my nominations when making them in a rush, then catching my error about 4 hours before the nominating deadline.

I was relieved to promptly receive an email confirmation within moments of seeing on the website that I'd successfully submitted my ballot. It's belts'n'suspenders'n'more affirmation that my electronic vote was received and contained the information I entered. And a very useful set of affirmations at that.

I understand that the Hugo Voter packet will not be available after the voting deadline. That makes lots of sense given that the people and companies providing the materials are doing so in support of the Hugo voting process. I greatly appreciate the publishers and other rights owners providing nominated works to eligible voters and congratulate this year's nominees.

The year Science-Fiction Five-Yearly was nominated, I breathed a huge sigh of relief when voting closed. No longer could anything I did or didn't do have any effect on the voting outcome. I wanted the work to be judged, not any of my own actions or statements during the time I knew SFFY was nominated. With voting closed, I was able to relax and enjoy the rest of the ride.

Okay, it's now 11 hours, 1 minute and 17 seconds. Onward!
