YALSA Nonfiction: Voting

Time to discuss Voting Procedures for the YALSA Nonfiction award. Not as simple as “just vote,” but pretty darn close:

Following discussion at Annual, balloting will begin. Members must be present to vote. Proxies will not be accepted. Additional titles nominated after this point will be considered in the final voting conference calls between October 31 – early December.”

So, voting begin at Annual and members must be present; after Annual, because of the way the calendar works, the discussions take place during conference calls.

Next week: Final Voting of Award Title.
