How does ‘Dancing with the Stars’ voting work?

Instead of voting on an ABC app, fans will instead use Disney+ to pick their favorite contestants. Click on this link to cast your vote.

Per Decider, voting begins as soon as the episode airs and closes 10 minutes before the end of the episode. A vote can be cast up to 10 times.

For the first time, viewers in all time zones will be able to vote at the same time.
