Site Selection to choose the site of the 1977 Worldcon was conducted by Aussiecon II, the 1975 Worldcon.

The bidders were 7 in '77, New York in '77, Philadelphia in 1977, Washington in '77 and Montreal in '77. Montreal dropped out of the race before the vote and the results were:

Bidder Votes
7 in '77 298
New York in '77 111
Washington in '77 91
Philadelphia in 1977 28
Total 528

We do not have the mail/at-con breakdown, except that the great majority of votes were by mail.

There is an interesting several-page article on the 1977 Worldcon bids in Karass #11, January 1975.
