On Tuesday, Major League Baseball and the Cleveland Indians announced some changes to the way that fans can vote for their representatives in the All-Star Game.

Yesterday at noon (M.T.), Major League Baseball and the Cleveland Indians launched their new form of All-Star Game voting. The game will take place on July 9th at Progressive Field in Cleveland.

In the new style of voting, there will be two phases. The first phase, called “The Primary” is much like voting was before. You can vote for one player in each league at each position, excluding the outfield, as the outfielders are lumped together by league and you can vote for three in each league. You can also vote for one designated hitter in the American League since they have the DH.

Votes are cast exclusively online but there are a variety of places that you can vote. You can vote on any of the 30 MLB team’s websites, the MLB At Bat app, the MLB Ballpark App, and, through a partnership with Google, you can vote on Google (in the United States and Canada only) by searching “MLB vote”.

“The Primary” vote ends at 2 PM M.T. on Friday, June 21. That night, the top 3 vote getters at each position (and top nine outfielders) will be revealed on MLB Network during their MLB Network Showcase game featuring the Houston Astros and New York Yankees.

After that, the second round of voting will begin as there will be “The Starter’s Election,” as fans will have a 28 hour window to vote for who to start the All-Star Game of the three finalists (nine finalists for outfield). That will last from 10 AM M.T. on Wednesday June 26th through 2 PM M.T. on Thursday, June 27th. The results will be announced that night at 5 PM M.T. on ESPN.
