Reminder: Only a few days left for Hugo voting

If you signed up to nominate for the Hugos, you should have gotten an email from the HugoPinBot. The final ballot is up and your votes need to be cast before the end of the month.

And I’m leaving “din’t” in there because I’m in the South, dammit, and we talk that way.
