Or, if you're like me and would rather not talk to your remote, just press the "i" button to bring up the voting screen.  Note that voting ends one hour after the show ends where you live.

 

Presumably, the ability to vote for any of the 12 acts before all of them have performed is nationwide; it is certainly allowed in the Pacific time zone.  Also note that you can vote for multiple acts, and up to 10 votes per act (that's per act, not 10 total), but am I the only one that thinks that it doesn't make sense to cast 1-9 votes for an act - either you want it to continue, in which case you vote for it 10 times, or you don't, in which case you don't vote for it at all?

Thanks for that information. Generally, I don't talk to any devices other than a phone, and specifically to a person or voice mail on the other end.
