Dancing With The Stars 2021 Online & SMS Text Voting Info
How to Vote: There are two ways to vote: ONLINE & SMS (TEXT)
There is a picture representing each couple with “+” and “-” buttons below. Voters will click on the “+” sign to cast up to 10 votes for the couple associated with that button, and may do the same for as many other couples as they like. Once they are done voting, they need to click the “Save Votes” button on the confirmation page.
2. SMS Text –Text JIMMIE to 21523 to vote for Jimmie Allen
One successful text message equals one vote for Jimmie. Voters will receive a text message confirming their first vote was submitted and won’t receive another message unless or until they exceed the limit of 10 votes per couple. Voters must have a U.S. phone number/carrier and be in the U.S. or Puerto Rico for votes to count. Message and data rates may apply.
When to Vote
The first time the audience can vote is the Season Premiere on Monday 9/20. Voting opens at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT and closes at 5 a.m. ET / 2 a.m. PT. This is a special extended voting window for the premiere only. Those votes will be combined with the public votes from the second week.
For the rest of the season, voting will open at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m PT and will close during the last commercial break of the live ET/CT broadcast, shortly after all couples have danced. Live voting will only be available during the live show in the Eastern and Central time zones. However, individuals with SMS Text capabilities and/or working access to dwtsvote.abc.com (while the vote is open and active) will be permitted to vote, regardless of time zone, as noted throughout. Voting will then occur weekly as described from 9/27-11/22. Week Four, which has both a Monday and a Tuesday show, will have live voting on both nights.
Voting Limits: 10 votes per couple, per voting method, per voting window
That means a total of 20 votes for each couple (e.g. 10 votes for Jimmie online and 10 SMS Text votes for Jimmie).
