Rules for Voting

You must be 18 years old and located in the U.S. in order to vote. Voting is open from the duration of the live shows until an hour after the conclusion of that show per time zone. From the ABC.com website:

Online voting at both ABC.com and Facebook opens each Monday when the show begins on the East Coast at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) and stays open until 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) the next day the first week of the season, and open until 11 a.m. ET (8 a.m. PT) the following morning for all other weeks, including the finale.

In the past, ABC had voting limits, based on the number of contestants at the start of each episode, down to a minimum limit of 5 votes. However, no limit has been listed on their voting FAQ page this season yet. So keep an ear out during tonight’s season premiere in case they mention it. ABC.com also has an FAQ for more questions about how to vote for your faves on Dancing With the Stars.
