“Dancing with the Stars” voting is dramatically different for season 28. ABC has gotten rid of overnight voting. Instead, it will be live and timed to those tuning in to “DWTS” in the Eastern and Central time zones. Only those watching the show as it airs east of the Mississippi will get to weigh in with their votes. But don’t despair if you live in the Mountain and Pacific time zones: follow along with our live blog and you’ll know when voting opens for your favorite couples.
Online voting will open when the show begins at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT and will close during the last commercial break of the live ET/CT broadcast, shortly after all couples have danced. Voting will be via the website abc.com and by text.You get 10 votes per method, which you can give to just one couple or spread it among all of your favorites. You can reallocate your votes until the voting window closes. Just be sure to hit “Save Votes” each time you make a change to your votes!
To vote online, you will need a OneID account, which you can obtain via Facebook or with email address validation, must be 18 or older and living in the U.S. or Puerto Rico. To vote via SMS, do the following:
