If you are experiencing trouble with any of the voting methods, remember that you can always try another voting method.

How will having no Results Show impact the voting?
In this season of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, dancers will be eliminated towards the end of the show based on a combination of the vote results from the previous show and the Judges’ opinion of the dancers’ performances in that week’s show.  As a result, those eliminated dancers will not have their voting information included during the recap and any vote attempts for those eliminated dancers will not count. Note, during select episodes of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, there will be an opportunity to save a dancer who is in danger of elimination during the Instant Save.  See below for more details.

Voting will open at the end of the show once it is revealed who is eliminated/who remains eligible for voting. You cannot vote for the dancers who are eliminated towards the end of the show so the option to vote for those dancers will not be available once the results are known.  If you are in the Mountain, Pacific or Hawaiian time zone regions but go to vote before the show is telecast in your region, you will see a ‘spoiler alert’ message (for online and via the FOX NOW App) as the results for that week will be revealed.  

Is it true that some people can cast votes outside of the voting window? 
No, this is not true. As part of the process to ensure that SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE voting system is accurate and ready for the public to vote, windows are built into the all vote systems at various times outside of active vote windows.  This voting window is for testing purposes only and any votes received outside of the valid voting windows after each episode do not count as valid votes. 

Can I vote by using my cell phone?
Yes, if you are a wireless customer from a participating carrier you can vote using text messaging. Standard message and data rates may apply for messages sent and received.  Only send the keyword (i.e., the first name of each dancer) of the dancer that you wish to vote for to the 5 digit short code 21523 (e.g. Text NIGEL to 21523 or Text PAULA to 21523).

For more information on Text Voting, please read the SMS Terms and Conditions located at www.fox.com/dance/mobileterms.  

In addition, if you have a compatible handheld device, you can vote on your phone’s browser and SuperVote® via www.fox.com/dance/vote or the FOX NOW App.  Go to http://www.fox.com/fox-now  to get more info and links to download the FOX NOW app.

Voting by text messaging on your cell phone - What is text messaging/SMS?
Text messaging – sometimes known as SMS (short messaging service) - is a way of communicating short text messages via your cell phone.  Most (but not all) handsets have this feature.  For SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, only customers of the following wireless carriers with area codes from within the Continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the U.S., Virgin Islands can text their vote:  AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, Boost, Alltel, U.S. Cellular, MetroPCS,  Wireless, Virgin Mobile, Dobson, Cincinnati Bell, Cellular South, NTELOS, CellCom, Carolina West, Bluegrass Cellular, Cellular One, Centennial Communications, EKN, GCI Comms, Illinois Valley Cellular, Immix, Inland Cellular, Nex-Tech, Revol, United Wireless and West Central Wireless.  Wireless subscribers can vote by text message using their cell phone keypad to write a new message containing the keyword (i.e. the dancers first name) for the dancer for whom you wish to vote, and then sending it to the 5 digit short code 21523 (e.g. Text NIGEL to 21523 or Text PAULA to 21523).  Only send the keyword of the dancer that you see on-screen in the Voting Show to the short code. To get help with voting by text messaging, send the keyword HELP to 21523.  For full mobile terms relating to SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Text Voting go to www.fox.com/dance/mobileterms.   

How do I text my vote using a cell phone?
Each dancer will be assigned a keyword (their first name) which will appear on screen during the Voting Show.  To vote, simply start a new message containing the keyword of the dancer for whom you wish to vote and send it to the 5 digit short code 21523 (e.g. Text NIGEL to 21523 or Text PAULA to 21523).  If done correctly, you will receive a message confirming your first valid vote per dancer during the voting window for that Voting Show, regardless of how many votes you cast. Your carrier’s standard message and data rates may apply to messages sent and received, including any attempts outside of the voting window or attempts over the 20 vote limit.  Votes sent over the 20 vote limit will receive an ‘exceeded limit’ message.  Votes sent outside of the voting window will be invalid, and you will receive a message stating voting is closed.  To get help with voting by text messaging, send the keyword HELP to 21523.

I have forgotten the SMS key words to vote for my favorite dancer.  How do I find out the text messaging numbers/vote info?
Please make sure you watch the complete show to find out the right keywords for each dancer or go to http://a2.votenow.tv/ during the voting window for details of keywords per dancer.

Who can text their vote?  Who are the participating wireless carriers?
For SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, customers of the following wireless carriers with phone area codes within the Continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands can text their vote:  AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, Boost, Alltel, U.S. Cellular, MetroPCS,  Wireless, Virgin Mobile, Dobson, Cincinnati Bell, Cellular South, NTELOS, CellCom, Carolina West, Bluegrass Cellular, Cellular One, Centennial Communications, EKN, GCI Comms, Illinois Valley Cellular, Immix, Inland Cellular, Nex-Tech, Revol, United Wireless and West Central Wireless.  Subscribers must have a handset with two-way text messaging capability and have area codes from within the Continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands.  For additional Text Voting Terms and Conditions go to www.fox.com/dance/mobileterms  

Can I send multiple votes in a single message?
When texting your vote, you should send only one vote at a time. If you do not receive a ‘thanks for voting’ confirmation message (one per dancer you vote for, per Voting Show) then your vote will not count and you should try again by sending a single vote at a time within the valid voting window.  You may vote up to 20 times, per Voting Show.

When I tried to vote, my handset said 'message not sent' - why?
The text messaging system is designed to handle huge volumes of votes simultaneously.  In the unlikely event that congestion is experienced, the notice ‘message not sent’ may appear on your handset.  Please be patient and try again later.  If you are not a wireless customer, you will not be able to text message your vote for SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE so use another vote method instead. 

How do I vote using SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and on the FOX NOW App?
SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and on the FOX NOW App is available to Facebook account holders located within the Continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  For SuperVote® Online go to www.fox.com/dance/vote and follow the steps to vote.  For SuperVote® on the FOX NOW App, download the relevant App from the App StoreSM or Google PlayTM Store.  Data rates may apply for App download.  During the voting window viewers will be able to submit up to 20 votes per valid Facebook account ID per Voting Show (combined with FOX NOW App Voting).

During the voting window you will see a login page with a ‘Login with Facebook’ button where you will need to enter your e-mail address and password to log in (if you are not already logged in to Facebook).  If you do not currently have a valid Facebook account you will not be able to SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote or via the FOX NOW App unless you create a new account (but you can still vote using Text Voting).  Once you successfully log in using your Facebook account you will be required to accept the Facebook application permissions (this happens the first time you vote).  Once you have accepted the permissions you will be shown a ‘spoiler alert’ page so that, if you are still watching the show and do not want to know who has been eliminated, the results are not revealed.  If you opt to proceed past the spoiler alert (note, you can opt to check a box so that in the future you do not get a spoiler alert page shown to you again on that device), you will be shown the grid of the dancers up for vote where eliminated dancers from that episode will appear to be grayed out and you will be unable to select their image.

To allocate votes to dancers, click/touch their image and then select the + / - buttons to add or subtract votes.  When you are done allocating votes to that dancer, select the ‘submit’ button and you will be taken back to the grid to review your votes across all dancers (before submitting your votes) or repeat the process to vote for other dancers if you have votes remaining.  You may only submit up to 20 votes across SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and the FOX NOW App per Facebook Account ID per Voting Show. Once you have allocated your votes, click the ‘submit’ button.  You will then be taken to a screen to input a ‘CAPTCHA’ code for verification purposes.  Once the CAPTCHA information is inputted you must click the ‘Confirm Votes’ button to complete the process.  If you do not correctly enter the CAPTCHA information you will be prompted to try again.  If you successfully vote, you will receive a page that thanks you for your vote(s).  You will be prompted earlier in the process to allow SO YO THINK YOU CAN DANCE SuperVote® application to post to Facebook on your behalf.  If you accept this permission, the ‘thanks for voting’ page will also confirm that this activity has been added to your Facebook Timeline.  Your vote will be added to Facebook only once per episode, and you will have the option to add a message to the Facebook post. If you do not want your vote activity to be added to Facebook, you can decline the automatic post permission and/or turn the ‘add activity to timeline’ option to ‘Off’ via the settings.  You may also remove the individual vote post on an automatic share by clicking the 'Remove' link on the thank you page. If you turn the feature to “Off” prior to voting, you will be presented with the option to post your vote to Facebook by clicking the manual ‘share your vote' button on the thank you page. This will also allow you to share your vote to Facebook. The 'Add activity to Timeline' feature can be toggled on and off at any time via settings.  You will also be given the option to share the fact you voted via Twitter, if you have an account.  To do this, simply select the ‘Tweet Your Vote’ button on the ‘thanks for voting’ page, log in to Twitter (if you are not already logged in) and tweet. 

You may vote up to 20 times per valid Facebook account ID per Voting Show across SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and via the FOX NOW App, per Voting Show.  Any additional votes you cast or attempt to cast above this limit will NOT count. 

Why do you need a Facebook account to SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote  and via the FOX NOW App?
Logging into your Facebook account is a key security feature to guard against voting fraud.

What are the minimum software requirements to SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and the FOX NOW App?
To SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and the FOX NOW App, you must have a valid and active Facebook account, have javascript enabled, have cookies enabled and you must not remove the voting App from your list of Apps on the Facebook site during a voting window.  In addition, you should ensure you have pop ups enabled via your browser’s or device’s settings.

What are the supported browsers for SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote  and the FOX NOW App

How do I download the FOX NOW App to be able to vote on my mobile device?
Voting within the FOX NOW App is available on iOS and Android platforms for phones and tablets (including Windows devices and Kindle Fire).  Go to http://www.fox.com/fox-now  to get more info and links to download the FOX NOW app.

I’m seeing the ‘vote closed’ page during the active voting window at www.fox.com/dance/vote – why?
If you’re sure you are trying to vote online during the active voting window but you’re seeing the ‘closed’ page, please clear your browser cache and then refresh your page.   

I am having trouble voting via SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and via the FOX NOW App – why?
Although the Internet can handle huge volumes of vote submissions simultaneously, there may be times when your local service provider (or wireless carrier if on a mobile device) may not be able to handle every attempt due to the sheer volume.  If you are trying to vote during the voting window but it isn’t processing your attempt, make sure you have pop ups enabled via your browser’s or device’s settings (i.e. turn off pop up blocker), clear your history/cache and try again.  If that is not the issue, check your wireless connection as that is the most common cause of vote submission issues.  Please be patient and try again or you can always vote using Text Voting instead.

I am unable to submit my votes via SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and on the FOX NOW App– why?
If you are voting during the voting window and all you see is the ‘submitting votes, please wait’ page, it is likely that you have pop up blockers enabled on your device or browser.  If you experience this issue, change your browser’s or device’s settings to enable pop ups, then clear your history/cache and try again.  If you still encounter issues, then you can always vote using another vote method instead.

My mobile device keyboard is unresponsive when trying to input the CAPTCHA letters/numbers – why?
Sometimes smart phone devices with tap screen keyboards become unresponsive when trying to input the CAPTCHA details if the cursor moves so that it is no longer correctly within the input field for the CAPTCHA.  Make sure you click back to the CAPTCHA input box and try again.  If this does not resolve the issue, please exit out of the App and try again, making sure that when you get to the CAPTCHA entry, the cursor is correctly within the CAPTCHA input field.

When I select a dancer from the grid to assign my votes, it displays votes already populated. Why?
On some devices, when selecting a dancer from the grid using SuperVote®, you may see votes already populated for some dancers when the vote allocation modal appears (i.e., the page where you add or subtract votes for a dancer).  This relates to the sensitivity of the system and, depending where you click/touch on the grid, the system may allocate votes to that dancer depending on position of your finger when clicking.  If this occurs and it is not the amount of votes you wish to allocate, simply adjust the votes (adding or subtracting) to your liking using the + or – buttons or using the circular swipe motion around the image.  Then select ‘done’ and proceed with voting for more dancers or selecting ‘submit’ to proceed with the voting process.

I am having issues with some vote buttons using a Touch Screen device. Why?
Some touch screen devices (e.g., Windows 8 Touch Screen computers) may experience sensitivity issues when navigating around the SuperVote® experience.  There may be times when the mouse works but the touch screen does not, and vice versa.  This may be due to the browser being used.  If you experience this issue and cannot proceed to complete your vote submission, please try another device or voting method.

Is SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE collecting personal information through SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and via the FOX NOW App?
When you SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and via the FOX NOW App, you will be asked to share some personal information with SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE for vote verification purposes and for other permissible uses set forth in the FOX Privacy Policy.  Please refer to the FOX Privacy Policy at www.fox.com/privacy for more information about the personal information collected by SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE SuperVote® and how that information may be used.

Why am I getting a ‘page does not exist’ or ‘online voting not currently available in your location’ error page when trying to vote using SuperVote® at www.fox.com/dance/vote and via the FOX NOW App from within the U.S.?
If you are trying to vote from within the U.S. but see a page which says ‘The page you are looking for does not exist’ or ‘Online voting is not currently available in your location’, it may be that your connection to the internet is being routed via a region not in the U.S.  This may be caused by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) experiencing local level congestion during peak times and therefore load balancing the traffic via a less congested region, which could be located outside of the U.S.  If you feel you have reached this page in error, please clear your browser’s cache and then refresh the page.  If the problem persists, please be patient and try again later, or use another method to cast your vote.

What's being done about power dialing?
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE voting process is administered and carefully monitored by an independent vote management company. If you vote, you are agreeing not to use any unofficial third party services to cast your votes on your behalf, or vote outside of authorized time zones, windows and/or locations. The Producers, in consultation with this independent vote management company, reserve the right to remove votes that are identified as having been cast in violation of the foregoing and/or in such a significant block, either by technical enhancements or otherwise, that it could unfairly influence the outcome of the voting.

Can I vote using an anonymizing web proxy service for SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE SuperVote®Online Voting or FOX NOW App Voting? 
Producers reserve the right to remove votes identified as coming from anonymizing web proxy IP addresses.

What is the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Fan Save?
During select episodes of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, it will be revealed which dancers received the lowest number of votes after the previous Voting Show, and viewers will then be given an opportunity to SAVE dancers from elimination via a real time vote using Twitter during the East/Central broadcast.

During the East/Central broadcast only (see local listings for times) of the select episodes, a Twitter hashtag will be shown on air for each of the dancers up for the Fan Save.  The time period to vote will be 5 minutes so make sure you watch the live East/Central broadcast and follow the instructions to vote at the appropriate time.

Once the Voting Period closes, no more votes will be accepted and shortly afterwards the results will be revealed live during the East/Central broadcast and the dancers with the most Fan Save votes will be saved and will continue on to participate in the main vote (see above voting FAQs for full details).  Tweets submitted after the Voting Period closes will not be counted.

How do I vote in the Fan Save?
There is one (1) voting method to participate in this Fan Save: Twitter account holders may participate by posting, from their Twitter account (“Twitter ID”), a Twitter message (a tweet) with the assigned promoted dancer hashtag corresponding to ONE of the dancers they want to save. Voters can cast ONE (1) vote for a Street dancer and ONE (1) vote for a Stage dancer. Voters do not need to vote for both, if they do not wish to do so.  Retweets will be counted as a valid vote as long as you do not add a comment, which makes it a ‘quote’ not a ‘retweet’, and a ‘quote’ will not count as a valid vote. For clarity, if a user has already cast an organic tweet as part of the Fan Save, a retweet by the same user will not be counted.  Conversely, if a user has already cast a Fan Save using a correctly cast retweet, an organic tweet for a dancer from the same category after that will not count.

Hashtags will be promoted during the Eastern/Central broadcast of the show and will consist of #Save plus the first name (or nickname) of the dancer, all as one word: 

Street Dancers

1. #SaveAriana
2. #SaveAsaf
3. #SaveBurim
4. #SaveJaja
5. #SaveJJ
6. #SaveLily
7. #SaveMegz
8. #SaveNeptune
9. #SaveVirgil
10. #SaveYorelis

Stage Dancers

1. #SaveAlexia
2. #SaveDarion
3. #SaveDerek
4. #SaveEdson
5. #SaveGaby
6. #SaveHailee
7. #SaveJim
8. #SaveKate
9. #SaveMarissa
10. #SaveMoises

A Fan Save vote will only count if it includes one of the applicable promoted dancer hashtags listed above. Misspellings will not be counted; however, each dancer has one dancer hashtag and alternate spelling variations.  Dancer hashtags are not case-sensitive. Tweets which contain more than one valid dancer hashtag will count the FIRST hashtag as valid and discount any subsequent hashtags in the same tweet.

To cast a vote in the Fan Save, you must have a valid Twitter account and your privacy setting must be set to public. Twitter users may vote by posting a Twitter message (i.e., a tweet) during the valid Voting Period. Limit one (1) vote per Twitter ID per category (1 vote for a Street dancer, 1 vote for a Stage dancer). Any Twitter message posts made after your first vote for a dancer per category will NOT be counted.  Re-tweets will be accepted as votes for the Twitter ID that re-tweets as long as you do not add a comment, which makes it a ‘quote’ instead of a ‘retweet’, and a ‘quote’ will not count as a valid vote. Outside of each Voting Period, any Twitter messages you post will not count as a vote. The Voting Period is determined by Producer and/or Fox and will be announced on air and via the official SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Twitter handle @DANCEonFOX during the East/Central broadcast of the Voting Show.  

Only the dancers identified during the show as being in danger of being eliminated will be eligible to receive votes through the Fan Save during the valid Voting Period.

Who can vote in the Fan Save?
Voting in the Fan Save is open to all individuals who are thirteen (13) years of age or older and with a valid Twitter account (visit Twitter.com to register for an account).  To participate in the Fan Save, you must have your Twitter account set to public.  Voting in the Fan Save is free with a valid Twitter account.  Data rates may apply.

When can I vote in the Fan Save?
Voting in the Fan Save is available during select episodes of the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE season. The Voting Period within each select episode with a Fan Save takes place during the Voting Show’s East/Central broadcast ONLY.  The Voting Period will be announced on-air (and via the official SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Twitter handle @DanceOnFOX) near the end of the applicable episode, when the dancers in danger of being eliminated are revealed.  The Voting Period within each select episode will last for five (5) minutes from the time that the start of voting is announced.  The 5 minute voting window for the Fan Save will happen near the end of the show during its live broadcast on Monday from 8pm – 10pm ET / 7pm – 9pm CT.

If you attempt to vote outside of the defined Voting Periods, your vote will not count. 

The Voting Period is subject to change.

How many times can I vote in the Fan Save?
In each Voting Period, there is a limit of one (1) vote per Twitter ID per category (i.e. 1 vote for a Street dancer and 1 vote for a Stage dancer).  Any Twitter message posts made after your first vote for a dancer per category will NOT be counted.  Re-tweets will be accepted as votes for the Twitter ID that re-tweets as long as you do not add a comment, which will make it a ‘quote’ instead of a ‘retweet’, and a ‘quote’ will not count as a valid vote.

Producer and Fox Broadcasting Company reserve the right to change the limit on the number of votes that may be made via Twitter in the Producer's and/or Fox’s sole discretion. 

I see a broadcast feed other than the East/Central broadcast that airs 8pm – 10pm ET / 7pm – 9pm CT – can I participate in the Fan Save?

The Fan Save is open to anyone who sends a Twitter message with the correct hashtag during a valid Voting Period.  So if you are from a region which does not view the East/Central broadcast live, you can still participate if you follow the @DanceOnFOX handle as you will know who is eligible for the Save and when to tweet your vote.  Tweets submitted after the Voting Period closes will not be counted.
