Because of the Presidential election, the live playoffs are only one night for season 11’s The Voice, which means that, for the first time, the results will be announced in real-time. So, the voting rules are just slightly different. The results will be announced live via the ET/CT time zone and, throughout the show, the coaches will make the immediate decisions to save one artist each to complete their roster, while the other artists are sent home. The remaining 12 artists will then move on to the final live-show phase of the competition, which starts Monday, November 14, 2016.
For the real-time voting, there are two different ways to vote available. Check out the different ways to cast your votes and how to execute each one below.
You can cast your votes via Twitter if you are following the @NBCTheVoice handle, which will announce the artists who are eligible. In order to cast a vote, your Twitter profile must be set to public. Tweet out a message with the appropriate contestant’s #hashtag in order to vote and there is one vote per Twitter ID allowed per Team Voting Window.
In addition to individual contestant voting, there will is the Team Voting Window. The voting window for this is completely in real-time tonight (8 – 10 p.m. ET/ 7 – 9 p.m. CT/ 5 – 7 p.m. PT). There is a limit of 10 votes per person via other forms of voting. For the Team Voting, you are able to vote via Facebook and general voting methods as well.
Twitter voting is available for all users over the age of 13 who have a valid Twitter account. And, when it comes to voting via Twitter, mistakes and misspellings are actually acceptable. Check out an example of the accepted mistakes in the below screenshot photo.
