My Hugo award votes....

I voted in categories where I had read each offering. Sometimes twice. I did not vote in categories where I felt I had nothing to base a vote on.

Did I vote early? Yes, I did... because I cannot be sure of having reliable internet the next few weeks, and I didn't want to risk not voting at all.
