VOTE #TeamHennergy!! How to Vote for Derek Hough and Marilu Henner on DWTS Season 23

imageIt’s that time once again, folks! Time to dust off your voting accounts, make some new ones and get ready for season 23. Derek has the lovely and talented Marilu Henner this season – they need your votes and it’s time to get ready!  It’s up to YOU to make sure Marilu’s fans and new Derek fans see this tutorial and learn how to vote!  This is the same tutorial I’ve used for many seasons now, so excuse any instance of the wrong person’s name. Just bring it to my attention. 🙂  Watch this post, also, in case they change any of the rules as we get closer to the premiere.  

ETA: It used to be that international fans could vote. The recently posted rules appear to say that this is no longer true. SEE Below for a Work Around by Courtney.

The Short Version

Call 1-800-868-3408 As soon as the show starts – you get the same number of votes as there are dancers until we get to 5. So week 1 you get 13 votes. In the quarter finals and beyond, you get five votes per phone. The phone number I put in here is based on the alphabetical order of the cast by first name, which is how they’ve done it for the last several seasons. We’ll find out if this is right or wrong before the show goes live, I’m sure. NOTE THE NEW NUMBER and update your speed dial!!

Go to ABC.com and vote for Marilu and Derek (look for the big “Vote Now” banner)- and keep going with as many accounts as you can until 8 PM Eastern time on Tuesday evening when there is no results show. When there IS a results show voting may end at 11am Eastern time on Tuesday. We’ll find out the details when the show starts and update accordingly. So check back!

Don’t forget calling in via Skype and Voting Using Facebook
