Westercon 71 Site Selection and Bidding
One of the important traditions at Westercon is selecting the site of a future Westercon, specifically the one being held two years after the current one. Westercon 69 will therefore be conducting site selection for Westercon 71. All supporting and attending members of Westercon 69 are entitled to vote in site selection.

At this time there is one bid filed for Westercon 71: Denver, Colorado chaired by Keith McClune.

Ballots will be available after the April 15th bid deadline. Ballots will be mailed out by May 20, 2016 in the Westercon 69 Progress Report. You may download a PDF copy of the Site Selection Ballot to print and mail in for Site Selection. Mail-in ballots must be received by June 21, 2016 to be counted. Follow the instructions carefully.
If you wish to vote but miss this deadline, you may have your ballot hand-carried by someone to deliver it to the site selection voting location at the convention.
