Final Ballot Voting Note: Under the rules in force at the time, Hugo Award voting was “first past the post,” meaning that the nominee with more votes than any other nominee (not necessarily a majority) won the Award.

(Our thanks to Tom Whitmore, who recovered the final voting figures document from the records of Alva Rogers and scanned it for us. The original is on Pacificon 2 color stationary.)
