Dancing With the Stars enters its third week for season 25 and two contestants have already been eliminated, which means votes are extremely important. Tonight, the show airs live at 8 p.m. ET, with a time-delayed broadcast at 8 p.m. PT on ABC, as usual.
For week three of the show, viewers can cast their votes for their favorite contestants or couples via phone during and up to 60 minutes after the end of the Dancing with the Stars broadcast in each time zone. Online voting is available at ABC.com via http://dwtsvote.abc.go.com/ and on Facebook at http://bit.ly/2o1VO7b. The online voting is open for 24 hours, starting from the very beginning of each episode on the East Coast at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and closing at 8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. PT on Tuesday nights.
