AT&T MLS All-Star: Twitter voting will open Wednesday

Since fan voting for the 2014 AT&T MLS All-Star Game opened on May 28, the ballots have been flying in for the All-Star Fan XI. 

On Wednesday, a new wrinkle will officially be added to the mix: The Twitter vote. 

Go to the Twitter Ballot.

How does it all work? Here's what you need to know: 

  • Voting is open from 12pm ET Wednesday, July 2 to 11:59pm ET Sunday, July 6, 2014. A short window, so make sure you get as many tweets in as you can. 
  • An eligible vote consists of the hashtag #MLSAllStar
    • AND the player's full name (first and last required) with or without a space (Example: Kekuta Manneh, or KekutaManneh);
    • OR their twitter @handle (Example: @Kekuta16).
  • A user may vote for one player in a tweet; If the user votes for multiple players in the same tweet, only the first player's name will be counted as a vote.
  • A user may only vote for players on the All-Star ballot (click here to see the online ballot).
  • There is no limit to the number of tweets a user may submit for any one player. Go nuts. 
  • Each retweet of an eligible vote counts as one vote.
  • Each Twitter vote counts equal to one online vote. 

So that's the deal. Get your Twitter game is ready, the All-Star Fan XI depends on it. 

Tune in to the 2014 AT&T MLS All-Star Game on August 6 at 9:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2, UniMás, and in Canada on TSN and RDS
