Site Selection for the 2005 Worldcon was conducted by ConJose, the 2002 Worldcon. The only bidder was Glasgow in 2005 which won and went on to run Interaction. (For a time there was a Sydney in 2005 bid which did not file.)

Glasgow in 2005 won with an absolute majority on the first ballot. The lack of competition resulted in an unusual number of (occasionally) amusing write-ins. Detailed results:
