Viewer Voting FAQs for Season 6, Fall 2009, So You Think You Can Dance

How do I vote?
Each contestant will be assigned a toll-free telephone number during the performance shows which feature voting.  However, during the first 3 weeks of voting (starting Tuesday, November 10th, 2009), contestants will perform as couples and each dance couple will be assigned a toll-free telephone number during those performance shows.  To vote, simply watch “So You Think You Can Dance” on FOX each week (see local listings for times in your area) and dial the telephone number of the contestant(s) for whom you wish to vote.  Voting will open at the end of each performance show which features voting.  DO NOT call before the end of the show as the lines will not be open.  For the first 2 weeks of performance shows (October 27th and November 3rd) the results will be decided by the judges and no voting will take place.  During those first 2 weeks the judges’ elimination decisions will be revealed at the end of each performance show.  For all other performance shows which feature voting the results of the vote will be revealed in the results shows that will also air on FOX later the same week (see local listings for details). Rules and procedures are subject to change at producers’ discretion without notice.
