Attention “Dancing with the Stars” fans: ABC has shortened the window for voting for your favorite couple. You now have just under two hours to cast your ballot for the celebrities that you want to see continue on in season 29 of “DWTS.” And making this even worse for fans of the show in the western half of the country, voting lines are open only while the show is airing live in the Eastern and Central time zones. But don’t despair. We have all the details you need to make sure that your voice is still heard.
Voting lines go live as soon as the show starts at 8:00 pm ET/7:00 CT and closes during the last commercial break. This will allow Tyra Banks to reveal the results at the end of the live broadcast in the eastern half of the country. You can vote via both text message and online.
You get 10 votes for each of these methods, meaning you have up to 20 votes per episode. If you want to, give all of these to your favorite couple among the Top 13. Or spread them around the bakers dozen of stars still competing. You can keep changing your mind right up until voting ends as long as you click “Save Votes” every time you do so.
To vote online, you must have an ABC account (get that with email address validation), be 18 or older and living in the U.S. or Puerto Rico. To vote via SMS, do the following:
Text AJ to 21523 to vote for AJ McLean
