There's no day better than April Fool's to send in your TAFF Vote!

Unless, of course, like me, you already voted. Administrators on both sides of the Pond are accepting voting contributions and ballots via Paypal as well as by the traditional check. [The administrators are Anne Gray and Brian Gray (US) and Steve Green (UK.) Addresses and such are on the TAFF ballot available for downloading as both a PDF and Word document.

Votes in this race must reach the administrators by midnight GMT, 26 April 2011 (7pm EST; 4pm PST).

Graham's been my man since Christmas Eve when he put a true original (and thank Gopod for that) "Please don't vote for me for TAFF" on YouTube. It's embedded below and contains at least as many reasons to vote for any of this year's other TAFF candidates as it does to vote for Graham Himself:


Best of luck to Graham, and also to worthy candidates John Coxon, Liam Proven, and Paul Treadaway! TAFF uses fandom's traditional modified Australian ballot where you rank your voting preferences. On my ballot, John came in a very strong second, Paul wasn't very far behind him, and the only reason Liam wrapped up the pack is that I'm less familiar with his fanac than I am with the other three. It's a very strong field and I hope the winner has a fabulous trip to the US and Renovation!

The winner will be announce on the TAFF 2011 LJ community, TAFF's Facebook page, File 770, in Ansible and elsewhere across the fannish firmament.

It's December! Along with Santa Monkey*, that means it's time to...VOTE FOR TAFF!

I'm proud to be among Brian Gray & Anne KG Murphy's nominators. I think Brian & Anne are excellent candidates and that they'll be splendid TAFF delegates if they win. Brian & Anne are running an energetic, collaborative campaign along with Frank Wu, their fellow candidate in the 2010 TAFF race.

Votes in this race must reach the administrators by midnight PST, 22 December 2009. This is 8am GMT, 23 December 2009. Administrators are Chris Garcia here in the US and Steve Green in the UK. Addresses and other information are included on the ballot linked to above, including email/PayPal voting info.

In addition, Frank has put up a set of lively eBay auctions running through next Monday evening, December 7th (PST). Earlier this year, Brian & Anne rounded up almost all of the Tuckerizations on offer. Bid on naming rights for a character in upcoming works by Cory Doctorow, Charlie Stross, David Brin, Elizabeth Bear, Nalo Hopkinson, Julie Czerneda, and/or Mary Robinette Kowal. There are also two desirable first editions from George Orwell and John Hershey donated by Terry Hickman The auction is already adding more than $1,000 to TAFF's coffers, which bodes well for the health of the fund as well as spreading awareness of it.

For bunches of background and interesting information, see the TAFF website.
