The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2018 inductees. Fans will need to login with a Facebook account or email to vote. Voting is capped at one ballot per day.
The 2018 inductees — the five to seven acts chosen — will be announced in December with the 33rd annual induction ceremony set for April 14th at Public Auditorium in Cleveland. HBO will once again broadcast the ceremony with details to be announced later.
