The 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Official Ballot

Goldmine Magazine posted on their website a scan of the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ballot. Some notable elements of this year’s ballot:
  • The voting deadline is Monday, December 5, 2011. Inductees should be announced within a couple weeks after that deadline.
  • The ballot points you to a “special website just for voters” so you can “refresh your memory of the artists’ music” by listening to 30 second clips of a handful of songs. Ok…
  • Voters are no longer asked to rank their choices in order of preference as they did in previous years. You can see the instructions on the 2008 ballot. It was never clear how the rankings were used in counting the ballots, so it makes sense to remove that requirement.
  • The ballots are individually numbered. Goldmine’s ballot is #229. Voter Steve Pond’s ballot is #251. There were more than 500 ballots sent out this year.
  • It’s a good thing that clip art finger is pointing you in the right direction. You might get lost otherwise.
