Yes, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ballots are actual paper ballots. And one of the voters shared a snapshot of their ballot over the weekend.
And no, John Heilemann didn’t fill it out first: I’m sure he would’ve gotten in trouble for that. It’s cool to see the genuine article out in the wild though, right? If I had this ballot in front of me, I’d be checking the boxes next to Foo Fighters, Iron Maiden, Rage Against The Machine, and Tina Turner. And I’d write in Pat Benatar. How about you?
It's that time of year again: @rockhall ballots are due next month. You can pick up to 5. You can't do write-ins. Who ya got? Cc @JoeNBC @dcherring @CharlesPPierce @RadioFreeTom 🤘👨🎤🎸🥁🎶 pic.twitter.com/e8CoV2nIuq— John Heilemann (@jheil) April 11, 2021
