Here we are about 24 hours since the online Locus Poll ballot went live, and so far 86 Locus Poll ballots have been received, as well as ... 11 Poetry Poll ballots. (Well, I knew there would be relatively light response to that poll. SF poetry readers are to SF readers as SF readers are to all readers, or something like that.)
The initial response to the Locus Poll is about twice as heavy as it was last year, when only 41 ballots were submitted in the first 24 hours. The difference I'm sure is due to the mention of the online ballot on several popular blogs, including Cheryl's and Jonathan's and John's, and probably others I haven't seen. All are welcome. Vote!
