Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars is ready to premiere, and fans can’t wait to get started. This fall, 2015 DWTS season has a very eclectic cast of celebrities, and there’s no telling which pair will ultimately take home the Mirror Ball Trophy. ABC has just released the scoop on voting for the new season, and fans will want to keep these details handy. What do viewers need to know?
ABC shares that the voting basics remain the same for Season 21 of DWTS. Fans can vote on the show’s website, via Facebook, or via calling in by phone. Voting begins as the show airs on Monday nights, and phone voting ends one hour after the show ends in each local time zone.
Online voting begins as the show airs and continues until 8 p.m. Eastern the next day. Voting specifics will shift a bit beginning in Week 8 as voting closes at 11 a.m. on Tuesday mornings.
As for each couple’s voting numbers, it used to be that the phone numbers related to the dance order in the premiere, and then each couple kept that number through the full season.
