According to ABC, “During the double-show week of September 25th, online voting opens Monday, September 25th at 8:00 p.m. ET (5:00 p.m. PT) and closes 11:00 a.m. ET (8:00 a.m. PT) the following morning. On Tuesday, September 26th, voting opens at 9:00 p.m. ET (6:00 p.m. PT) and closes at 9:00 p.m. ET (6:00 p.m. PT) the next day. During the week of the finale, voting opens Monday at 8:00 p.m. ET (5:00 p.m. PT) and closes at 11:00 a.m. ET (8:00 a.m. PT) the next morning.” Don’t miss out!
