“American Idol” 2019 Voting Online & How to Use the App
For those who want to vote for contestants online, you can cast your votes via AmericanIdol.com/vote. You will need to create an account for yourself if you do not already have one. You must be at least 13 years old and located in the U.S., Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands to vote on ABC.com or if you use the American Idol app.
ABC reports that, “To vote at ABC.com, the American Idol app, or the ABC app, an ABC account is a must. We’ve made the process pretty easy for you. You can sign up for an ABC account using your email address. In addition, to vote via the American Idol app (App Store and Google Play Store) or ABC app (App Store and Google Play Store), you must download and install the app to your compatible device.”
If you already have an ABC account, you may still need to do go through a couple of actions in order to get back into voting mode. ABC states, “The first time you try to register votes you will be sent a confirmation email with a verification code. Just go back to the website and enter the code where indicated to verify your email address and complete voting registration. Once your account is validated, you’re all set to vote now and for the upcoming season. You can sign in at the top of the page to validate your account. Sometimes it takes a few minutes for the validation email to be delivered, so give it a few minutes. Also, be sure to check your “spam” folder to make sure the email didn’t land there.” This is because the website made changes to its registration system, which may affect previous users.
