The WNBA All-Star Game is headed for San Antonio on July 23, and it’s time to pick the starting lineups. Beginning at halftime of tomorrow’s Silver Stars game against the Atlanta Dream, you’ll have the chance to vote for starters in both the Eastern and Western Conferences. All-Star voting is going to be slightly different this year than you remember. For the first time, there are no paper ballots in arenas. In a sign of the changing times, voting will be done via WNBA.com and by texting.
For SMS voting, fans can vote for All-Stars anytime by texting a player’s last name from their mobile phones on any wireless carrier. Fans can cast one SMS vote per day, per phone number. Message and data rates may apply. T-Mobile customers will receive an exclusive 15 percent discount code to WNBAStore.com for voting via SMS. Upon voting, T-Mobile customers will receive a bounce-back message with a discount code for them to use on WNBAStore.com.
Fans can also vote directly on WNBA.com or use their Facebook profile information to help create a WNBA.com All-Access account, enabling them to complete a ballot. After submitting their All-Star selections, fans will be able to share them with their friends on Facebook and followers on Twitter, and encourage others to cast their ballots.
That means it’s up to you to vote daily for the Storm starters on the ballot – past All-Star starters Sue Bird, Swin Cash and Lauren Jackson as well as Camille Little and Tanisha Wright. We know they’re all All-Stars, but now it’s time to make that reality.
