The 2017 Hugo Voter Packet, a selection of works shortlisted as finalists for the 2017 Hugo Awards and made available to all voting members of the 2017 Worldcon, is now available. Worldcon 75 announced in a Facebook post on May 17 that “Messages have gone out to voters, including personalized links and information on how to access the packet. Anyone who has not received it should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The announcement also explains that the Hugo Voter Packet “includes many of the works on the final ballot in full, preview versions of others, and work by most of the individuals who are finalists.” Participation in the Hugo Voter Packet is voluntary, and is completely at the discretion of the various rights holders of the nominated works and of the individual finalists. The packet is organized and created by the individual Worldcon committees, and is not a required Worldcon function; however, many recent Worldcons have organized such packages for the benefit of their members to make it easier for them to evaluate the finalists.
The Hugo Voter Packet for 2017 is administered by the 2017 Worldcon, not the Hugo Awards web site. Direct any questions about the packet to email@example.com.
