The X Factor Plans 5 Ways to Vote: What Will Be Your Go-To Method?

Good news for Tweens, lusty moms, the gays, single ladies, closet reality junkies, and every other fan bloc currently planning to spend the remaining Wednesday and Thursday nights of 2011 tuning in to The X Factor. Fox’s latest talent competition has teamed up with Verizon to offer fans five different ways to cast their votes for Drew Ryniewicz their favorite contestants.

According to the good folks at Fox, fans will be able to vote immediately after every performance show via the following methods:

* Twitter, where viewers can go to twitter.thexfactorusa.com, follow @TheXFactorUSA, and cast their votes via Direct Message
* Toll-free phone calls, with lines open for at least two hours after the end of live performance telecasts
* Text-messaging for Verizon Wireless customers
* Online at TheXFactorUSA.com, and via Facebook.com/TheXFactorUSA
* “The Xtra Factor App” on Verizon Android devices

Both online and Twitter voting will be limited to 50 votes per user ID.

How do you plan to vote (even if on the record, you’d never admit to voting)? Sound off below!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Since I don’t have verizon, I will most likely vote online or on FB, but only for Drew :)

  2. Matt Webb Mitovich says:

    Michael, is there also a snail mail address to use? I’m old school that way.

    • Ben says:

      Also, sea mail is the perfect way to count international votes. It means you don’t have to worry about broadcast delays, have one results show every 6 months or so. When Leroy wins, he will be 65.

      I have homing pigeons you can rent! They reach the right address most of the time.

    • Drew Melbourne says:

      I was hoping for an option that uses two cans and a ball of twine…

  3. Liz says:

    Since i finally have the ability to text vote, i probably will do that

  4. Connie says:

    More than likely will be using twitter or phone (call in).

  5. Michael says:

    Ugh! No fire signals?

  6. Holly says:

    I plan to vote for Suburbgatory, Criminal Minds, Vampire Diaries, and Community by watching those shows instead of yet another reality singing competition.

  7. TheFinalMan says:

    Twitter via Direct Messaging (if they ever plan to follow their followers back). I’m pretty sure you can’t Direct Message someone that doesn’t follow you.

  8. John Berggren says:

    It’s nice to see limitations placed on twitter and web voting (though 50 is ridiculous. 10 makes more sense) but no limit on phone, etc? bleh. So whoever wants to waste the most time dialing all night for their favorite will win the day.

  9. Kevin C. says:

    Answer: None of the above. Why bother voting when it’s going to get drowned out by the 100+ online votes per person anyway?

  10. Nadine says:

    Twitter voting is a great idea, will use that.

  11. brutony says:

    Any Pony Express interest? With the way our snail mail runs, its actually FASTER via Pony Express than USPS! Can you still use telegraph, also? Hey, Im old skool!

  12. Saulo says:

    The entire world can vote through twitter! They’ll have the biggest number of votes ever!

  13. Eugene says:

  14. Audra says:
