“Dancing with the Stars” could well have a double elimination this week. That makes it even more important for you to know how to vote for your favorite couple on season 28 of “DWTS.” ABC axed overnight voting and it is now timed to the live show as it airs east of the Mississippi. But don’t worry if you live in the Mountain and Pacific time zones. We have all the details you need, including those all-important numbers if you want to cast your votes via text and the online address.
Voting starts as soon as the show begins on October 21 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT. After all nine couples have danced, voting will end during the last ad break of the live broadcast. Voting is done in two ways: online at the website and by text. And as you get 10 votes per method, this means you can give your favorite star a whopping 20 votes. Or you can spread them out among the contestants. You can keep reallocating your votes until the voting window shuts. Just remember to click “Save Votes” every time you make a change.
To vote online, you’ll need a OneID account (get that via Facebook or with email address validation) and must be over 18 and living in the U.S. or Puerto Rico. To vote via SMS, just do the following:
Text ALLY to 21523 to vote for Ally Brooke
Text SAILOR to 21523 to vote for Sailor Brinkley-Cook
Text HANNAH to 21523 to vote for Hannah Brown
