Voting Instructions for Mark and Me

Voting Instructions for Mark and Me October 1, 2012

Thank you guys for asking about how to best vote for Mark and me on Dancing with the Stars All Stars!  If you think we are the best dancers, then please use this official telephone number.  It is:


Phone lines open as soon as the show starts and stay open for 1 hour after the show.  Fans should try to phone vote as soon as the show starts.  After they dance and at end of the show are the hardest times to get through and we want every single vote.  You can vote on as many phones as you have access to.  For the first half of the season, voters will be allowed the same number votes as the contestants.  For example, this week there will be eleven contestants, so each type of account gets 11 votes.  Once they are down to 5 contestants or less, the fans still get 5 votes per account.

AT&T users can text the word “vote” to “3409” as well.  Once again you get the same number of votes as contestants.  You can text votes and call votes from the same phone.

The final way is online here.  On show nights there will be a vote tab.  You have to have an account to vote online.  You should make your accounts before the show starts because when the show is going the site crawls.  You can vote with as many accounts as you make.

Spread this information far and wide! Thank you for your support!

Do you want to be a part of my DWTS journey? Then, e-mail me so I can add you to my mailing list.  (My address is BristolsBlog @, without the space! Make sure to use the subject line: DWTS.) I’d love to give you the latest up-to-the-minute reports about the show!

    Bristol, your number doesn’t change. Please, correct it. 🙂

    The voting number for @BristolsBlog & @MarkBallas will be 1-800-868-3409 the entire season. Only dancing order changes, not the voting #

  • Fado

    Hear that folks: Vote for Bristol only if you think she’s the best dancer. That would require you actually watching the whole show and actually thinking none of the other stars are better dancers. Anything else would be lying 🙂

    • Suzanne

      Bristol and Mark ARE the best dancers with the BEST attitude and that seals the deal for me!

      • Reallynow

        Lol. The best dancers and best attitude, really? I guess the gum chomping throughout the whole show did it for you. Along with that boring, awkward and stiff dance.

  • bellagrazi

    Of course, I think you’ll be the best dancers, Bristol! You’re always the most fun to watch! All my votes go to Team Ballin! #hellyeah

  • laurie

    all i get is a busy signal, i can never get thru….

  • Barbara Powell

    It’s always too late for us to vote in Colorado when the show goes off. They announce at the end of the show that voting is closed.

  • ph

    WOO HOO! DWTS getting ready to start! Dance Bristol Dance!

  • Michele Bango

    Great job tonight!

  • ph

    Great job Bristol!

  • Lakerfanalways

    Bristol I thought you did great tonight..screw what the judges thought I have seen other dancers “Break the hold” and get away with it, but for some reason they give you this double standard. You totally ROCKED and I thought you did great!! What some dont realize or refuse to see is that your not a professional dancer yet you keep on improving every week and I think that is commendable, considering your going up against some on the show who are professionals..we got your back Bristol I already voted for you on the phone and online you have my full support

  • Yvonne

    Bristol – I think you and Mark did fantastic. I am voting for you.
    Fado .. You continually comment negatively and hatefully. Why are you even commenting on here? Although .. maybe you will wake up and be supportive of Bristol. There’s always hope.
    Keep on dancing Bristol!

  • CapitalG

    Voted for you of course, but I won’t blow smoke up those Daisy Dukes – this lacked the enthusiasm it deserved. You chose this song, it represented you and it came off as half hearted. You should have attacked that dance with over enthusiasm and more energy.

    Let it go! Have fun and let loose! Take Kirstie Alley – she isn’t the best dancer but she is going to give her all in a performance every time. What she doesn’t leave on the dance floor she is leaving on Tom Bergeron’s lips. Listen to Mark. Dance for your supporters, shake it for the haters. Emphasize for drama when needed. WORK IT OUT! Build your dance step up and then over do it. Rinse. Repeat.

  • CapitalG

    Also, LOVED the gun range bit. In. Your. FACE! Yeah, people hunt and like to target shoot. Some of our lives depend on it. Deal with it. Not everybody wants government mystery meat and cheese charged to their EBT card.

  • I voted for you Bristol.

  • Michael

    You guys who say you can’t get through on the phone or that it’s always too late for you to vote… You do know that you can vote online until 11 a.m. the NEXT DAY on ABC’s website, right? And, even if you ARE able to vote on the phone, be sure to vote online too!

  • MaryInMinnesota

    The best advice that “I” can give Bristol regarding dancing may not work for her, due to her age. I as an older woman, who danced her heart away as a young girl and still does as an older woman, and a …. um.. er… ahh… person who loved ahh.. um.. er… sex… there I said it!… Any hoo… if one can dance her heart away, she finds that her sex life is just as magical as the music. Since your still very young Bristol, then I suggest you do this. Put on your headphones and listen to some slow paced music… close your eyes… and think about the person you want to make love to. Then with your eyes still closed, make love to the person with the beat of the music. By doing this, the movements of your body become SEXUAL. That’s what dancing is all about… dancing by being sexual. Try it Bristol… don’t be ashamed of trying this… it will help you learn how to make love to the music. Watch some of the older women and how they dance, watch their movements… their movements are sexual, as if they are making love to someone they dream about. That’s what you need to do Bristol. My post is not intended to offend anyone, it’s just meant to help Bristol loosen up and relax her body, and it’s not meant to offend Bristol either.

  • Maryanne V Clark

    I voted for you and Mark as many as the phone would let me also on Facebook!!! Hope you made it, I think you are both fabulous!!! You have come a long way Bristol, I admire you!!!!

  • autumng

    Why did the news say your inspiration for the paso was “Chess Pieces”? Oh, Please don’t be dress all freak-a-zoidish! Haha.

  • Bo

    Well, here’s hoping that your luck runs out this week so that the rest of the season will actually be a “competition” instead of a “popularity contest”. It’s time for the Palinistas to take up a different hobby . . . perhaps they could even watch PBS during prime time on Mondays and Tuesdays. They might even actually LEARN something.
    As for you, Bristol, I am sure there is a pole waiting for you out there somewhere so that you can continue the kind of dancing for which you are most qualified and experienced.

  • bellagrazi

    Awesome, thanks Bristol! I’ve been stepping up the voting every week. Double-elimination is no joke! All of Team Ballin fans are going to have to step it up. Super excited about your Paso! Break a leg!

  • NanaJ

    We do not have a problem getting through because we vote for Bristol and Mark as soon as the show starts. That’s how to beat the busy lines.

    • Bo

      So, NanaJ, what you’re admitting is that it really doesn’t matter to you that Palin can’t dance. Thanks for your honesty, cupcake!

  • David

    Good luck tonight, Bristol.
    Relax and have fun.

  • Darling Bristol: Health Care! Today I Vote for You and Dear Mark Ballas in Dancing with the Stars: Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas: Good Luck! God Look We! Caress, Kiss,

  • joann

    Bristol you are a beautiful woman with strong ambitions and decency, younhave a beautiful son ,and you have improved in 2 years, you danced good but I really think you should had gone home instead of the 2 that did, I waited to see you come out and knock ’em dead but you didn’t and I’m a bit disappointed.. I think its best to be truthful at the moment rather than misleading you with a lie. I am not a liberal, in fact I am not a member of any political party. I am not a hater, and I have nothing against your mom or your family, I have no respect for those who are bashing and attacking you and your family, I think they are jealous. of you and your family. Please put more energy in your dance and don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone, that is the reason why you are on the show, right? And I think you could not have a better partner than mark ballad, he is very patient and understanding. Have a great weekend 😉
