‘Dancing with the Stars’: How to vote so that your favorite couple can escape double elimination on ‘DWTS’

Dancing with the Stars” is just two weeks away from crowning the season 28 winner. The November 11 episode of “DWTS” is all but certain to  conclude with a double elimination. The only way to be sure that your favorite couple in the contest makes it to the semi-final is to vote for them during the live show. You only have until the last commercial break to vote so you have to be ready. But don’t worry.

We’ve got all the details you need, including the website address for online voting and the numbers for texting. You get a whopping 20 votes, with half to send via SMS and the other 10 for online. Before you can vote online, you’ll need to sign up for a OneID account (via Facebook or with email address validation) and be over 18 and living in the U.S. or Puerto Rico.

To vote via text, do the following:

Text ALLY to 21523 to vote for Ally Brooke
Text HANNAH to 21523 to vote for Hannah Brown
Text JAMES to 21523 to vote for James Van Der Beek
Text KEL to 21523 to vote for Kel Mitchell
Text LAUREN to 21523 to vote for Lauren Alaina
Text SEAN to 21523 to vote for Sean Spicer

Voting opens as soon as the show starts on Monday at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT. Voting is over when all six couples are done dancing. You can give one contestant all 20 of your votes or spread them around among the half dozen stars still in the running for the Mirrorball trophy. (If you live in the Mountain and Pacific time zones, the only way to be an informed voter is to follow along with our live blog.)

We know at least one couple will be sent packing based on their total votes and judges scores in week 9. Who do you think it will be?
