Buying a site selection ballot in advance varies by worldcon and most Worldcons make it difficult.

Considering that they are capable of conducting an electronic ballot for the Hugo Awards, I always find it very annoying that online voting for site selection is so badly organised.

To vote at Worldcon 76, I have to:

Log in to my account from when I bought the original supporting membership two years ago (finding the password or resetting it)
Buy a site selection token
Wait for an email with the token (it doesn't appear on-screen in the account).
Print out a PDF.
Write the token on to the PDF.
Note that the email I just got was my Hugo token not my site selection token because the site selection email arrives five minutes later.
Rip up the PDF.
Print out another copy, write the correct token on, fill all my details in again.
Find an envelope and send it by international mail.
Hope it arrives in time.

Why they can't use the online voting system that they already have for the Hugo voting is entirely beyond me, but most Worldcons are the same.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
