Help Jim McGuinn vote for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees


Jim McGuinn has his ballot for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2018 inductees. Which five would you vote for? (Luke Taylor | MPR)

For the last couple years, I have been one of the people who gets to vote for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and this year, we thought we'd let you in on the process and kind of show you how it works.

Essentially, there are around a thousand people who receive a ballot in the mail every year in the fall after the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced the nominees. The voting deadline this year is December 8.

So here's who we've got this year, in alphabetical order:
• Bon Jovi
• Kate Bush
• The Cars
• Depeche Mode
• Dire Straits
• Eurythmics
• J Geils Band
• Judas Priest
• LL Cool J
• MC5
• The Meters
• Moody Blues
• Radiohead
• Rage Against the Machine
• Rufus featuring Chaka Khan
• Nina Simone
• Sister Rosetta Tharpe
• Link Wray
• The Zombies

Out of that list, I can vote for five, but I've got to do it by December 8. If you've got some suggestions or some comments, feel free to leave them below. Thanks for your help!

(And if you're in the mood for picking music favorites, be sure to send in your ballot for the Top 89 of 2017!)
