Voting for the 2006 Ursa Major Awards for the Best Anthropomorphic Literature and Art opened on March 10, 2007, and will run until midnight (PDT) April 14, 2007[1]. The award nominees were selected by determining the top five vote-getters in each category of the 2006 Recommended Anthropomorphics List; in the event of ties the number of nominees was simply expanded.

Ballots are available from the Ursa Major Awards website; the ballot also contains links to as many of the original works as possible. Votes may be cast either by e-mail or by postal mail. The awards will be presented at Califur 3.
