'Dancing With The Stars' Season 26 All-Athletes - Here's How The Voting Will Actually Work

Sharna Burgessheads up about the voting during the mini-season of Dancing With The Stars was pretty accurate.

The show confirmed that voting will be mixed up this season because of it being so short. So, here’s how it’s going to work:

For week one, the eliminations will be based on live viewer votes cast during the show’s live broadcast in the eastern and central time zones, along with the judges’ scores.

So, watch this live so you can vote!

For the first week only (still trying to determine this), US and Puerto Rico residents can only vote from ABC.com – and it opens at the top of the live show and will end shortly after the last couple dances.

In simple terms – as soon as the show starts, start voting for your favorite couple, even if they haven’t danced yet.

If you cast your vote but then change your mind, maybe because you saw another couple’s performance that you liked better, you can change your vote on the official Dancing with the Stars website at any point during the episode.

After voting closes at the end of the episode (around 10pm), the votes will be tallied and two (2) couples will then be eliminated.

Just moments later, you can vote again!

After the first live vote, voting will open once again to determine who will go home next week. You can do this by phone, or at ABC.com and Facebook for your faves. This will close @ 10PM ET/7PM ET the next day.
