How to Vote
Here’s how you can vote for your favorite book on The Great American Read.
Beginning May 22, 2018 at 8pm ET through October 18, 2018 at midnight PT, there are two methods of voting, which include:
- By using the voting app on The Great American Read website. You’ll have to register before your first vote, using either your email address or a Facebook login, but after that you’ll be able to vote with just a few clicks.
- By posting an original post to Facebook or Twitter using the official hashtag for your favorite book. The hashtags for each book can be found on the individual book pages in the READ THE LIST section. You can also download a PDF of the hashtag list here.
You can place one vote for each book every day, so go ahead and vote for all of your favorite books!
When the full series of The Great American Read launches on September 11, 2018, we’ll launch two extra ways to vote for your favorite book, alongside the existing online and hashtag voting:
- By calling a Toll-Free phone number for each book. We’ll add the phone numbers for each book to the READ THE LIST section when Toll-Free voting goes live on September 11, 2018.
- By sending an SMS with a unique code for your favorite book. We’ll add the SMS number and unique codes for each book to the site when SMS voting goes live on September 11, 2018.
All voting methods will close on October 18, 2018 at midnight PT. We’ll reveal the results and announce The Great American Read winner in the Grand Finale show.
