2011 Site Selection Results

Site Selection for the 2011 Worldcon was conducted by Anticipation, the 2009 Worldcon. The only bidder was Reno in 2011 which won and went on to run Renovation. (Seattle in 2011 and DC in 2011 were forced to drop out of the race before the filing deadline.)

As has become common in an uncontested race, there were a lot of write-in votes. The detailed results:
