Confused about how to vote for your favorite X Factor USA contestants? Fear not! You can cast a vote for your X Factor favorites in four ways.

Toll-Free Voting
Each contestant is assigned his or her (or their) toll-free phone number on Wednesdays, aka performance nights. Keep an eye on the screen, then call the number(s) associated with your pick (s). Easy as that.

Text Message/SMS Voting (Verizon Customers Only)
Why call when you can text, right? Like with the toll-free numbers, each contestant is assigned a unique, 4-digit code. If you're a Verizon customer, you can text the word VOTE to that number. Don't try texting the word vote to the toll-free number. It won't work.

Online Voting
If you don't want to use your phone at all, head on over to www.TheXFactorUSA.com from any computer. Heads up: You'll need a Facebook account to vote!

Verizon Touch Voting (Verizon and Android Phone Required)
If you're a Verizon customer and you have a fairly up-to-date Android touch-screen device, you can download The Xtra X Factor App and vote from there. Getting the app is pretty easy, just head on over to www.TheXFactorUSA.com/faq for full details.

But How Many Times Can I Vote?
Once voting opens (watch the show for details), you'll have two hours to cast your vote. You can vote as many times as you want using the toll-free and text methods, but you're restricted to 50 votes per Facebook ID if you choose to vote via www.TheXFactorUSA.com or The Xtra Factor App.

Remember, your favorites are counting on your votes to make it through to the next week. So be vigilant; if you can't get through using one method, try another one.

See you on performance night, and happy voting!
