Dancing with the Stars is back with a star-studded season 23 cast and the return of three of our favorite pros, namely, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Derek Hough and Cheryl Burke. If you’re curious as to how you can vote for your favorite dancers on Dancing with the Stars, we have all the information about the voting details right here.
During each episode, the 13 celebrities perform with their professional dancing partners. Judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Julianne Hough score their performances out of 10, making their total score out of 40. The TV audience then votes for their favorite performers and the pair with the least votes gets eliminated. Fans can vote every Monday night throughout the season, so their favorite star can win the coveted Mirrorball Trophy.
You can vote for your favorite contestants online or call in starting at 8:00 p.m. EST Monday night until 8:00 p.m. EST Tuesday. DWTS fans can vote online at abc.com or on Facebook.com/VoteDWTS for 24 hours after voting lines open.
