Each candidate has promised that barring acts of God he or she will travel to the convention in London, England, in 1965 if elected. In addition they have posted bond and provided signed nominations. Their platforms are on the reverse of this sheet.
Should the winner be unable to make the trip, the second place winner will be offered the opportunity; but no trip will be made, and funds will be held over if the first available winner does not poll one-quarter of the votes.
Details of voting will be kept secret. Write-in votes are permitted. No proxy votes are allowed; each voter must sign his own ballot.
I VOTE FOR
AND ENCLOSE THE SUM OF ____ AS A CONTRIBUTION TO TAFF.
Votes must reach one of the two administrators before March 1, 1965. The result of the election will be announced as soon as possible after this date.
To be eligible to vote you must contribute a minimum of five shillings (5/-) or one dollar ($1.00) to the Fund, and have been active in science-fiction fandom prior to September, 1963. Contributions in excess of the minimum will be most gratefully accepted. Any normal form of currency, money orders or cheques should be payable to the Administrator receiving your ballot -- NOT, please, to TAFF.
If you think your name will not be known to the Administrators, please give here the name and address of a fan or fan group to whom you are known.
REPRODUCTIONS of this form are authorized and encouraged, provided the wording is reproduced verbatim.
Under no circumstances may a fan vote more than once or enter one candidate's name more than once on a ballot. Illegal ballots may be voided by the adminstrators.
Since entering fandom in the late 1940's via the prozine letter columns and the Golden Gate Futurian Society, Terry has been a serious collector, clubfan, humorist, reviewer, carouser, con-committee member, satirist, and columnist. He co-edited FANAC, the news zine that won the 1959 Hugo, as well as publishing INNUENDO and other fanzines too humorous to mention. Today, in New York, he works closely with his old friend science fiction as Associate Editor of Ace Books -- and writes it on the side, while still remaining active in fandom. He might claim you could find a better TAFFman -- but you couldn't.
Nominated by: Walt Willis, Peter Mabey, Tom Perry, Avram Davidson, and Redd Boggs.
