Dear friend,

The annual BBWAA Hall of Fame election calls for each writer to mail his or her ballot to the BBWAA secretary. The ballots are filed by the voters, with nearly 600 eligible to vote. The validity of the vote is assured by Ernst & Young, an established auditing firm. Each writer may vote for as many as ten candidates, or as few as zero. As the system works, it is up to each voter to choose whether or not they wish to reveal his or her selections. Many of the writers list their choices in their newspaper columns, so, you may wish to look for newspaper columns in which specific writers share their ballots with the public.

The Hall of Fame plays no role in the CY Young or MVP voting.
