The Hugo Awards

Hugo Voter Packet

The Hugo Voter Packet is an electronic collection of short-listed works which in recent years has been made available to Worldcon members during the final ballot period to support the voting process. The Voter Packet is made available through the generosity of the finalists and their publishers.

You can download the 2014 Hugo voter packet here, and the 1939 Retro Hugo voter packet is here.

Please note that access to these packets will close when voting closes at 7:59 AM BST on 1 August 2014.
