Voting - Frequently Asked Questions

Got Questions? We've got answers!

1. How do I vote?
Simply go online to, log in and start voting!

2. What do I need to do to vote online?
To vote at, a username and a valid email address are a must. We've hopefully made the process pretty easy for you. In fact, if you already have a Facebook or Twitter account, you can sign in with one of those accounts, connect it to an ABC account and you're ready to go. If you don't have a Facebook or Twitter account, you can simply sign up for an ABC account at

3. How do I find the artists I want to vote for?
There are 19 categories for The 40th Anniversary American Music Awards. Every registered account gets 1 vote per category. You can either go through and vote in every category, or use the drop-down menu at the top of the page to go directly to the category you'd like to vote in. Once you've cast your vote in a category, it's removed from the drop-down and your vote is tallied.

4. I have an existing ABC account, why do I need to validate my email address?
The short answer is that we've changed our registration system for the better. When you log into your ABC account, you will be sent a confirmation email. Just click on the link inside. Once your account is validated, you're all set to vote.

5. I didn't get the email to validate my account. What should I do?
Please be patient! Sometimes it may take a few minutes for the validation email to be delivered. Also, be sure to check your "spam" folder to make sure the email didn't land there.

6. Help! I forgot my username and/or password.

8. Other members of my house would like to vote. Can they?
Sure! Just make sure to log out after you finish voting, then have your other household members log in with their Facebook, Twitter or accounts. It's perfectly fine to vote on the same computer.

The winners will all be announced LIVE on The 40th Anniversary American Music Awards SUNDAY NOV 18 8|7c on ABC!
