WNBA All-Star Voting FAQs from the League

  • The selection of the All-Stars is being conducted through a combination of voting by fans (50 percent of the vote), current WNBA players (25 percent) and a national panel of sportswriters and broadcasters (25 percent).
  • After the initial voting period, complete with input from these three groups, the top 10 vote-getters will automatically be named to participate in the All-Star Game. Any top 10 vote-getter who has not already been named to the USA Women’s National Team 5-on-5 roster will automatically be assigned to Team WNBA.
  • The names of the next 36 highest vote-getters, composed of at least nine guards and 15 frontcourt players, will then be provided to the 12 WNBA head coaches, who will vote to fill the remaining spots for the 12-player Team WNBA roster. Coaches will not be able to vote for their own players.
  • Rosters will be announced on Tuesday, July 2.
  • Throughout the voting period, fans may submit one full ballot daily via WNBA.com and the WNBA App. Fans can vote for up to 10 of the WNBA’s top stars per day (four backcourt players and six frontcourt players) regardless of conference affiliation. All WNBA players currently on team rosters will be available for selection.
  • Three “2-for-1 Days” on WNBA.com and the WNBA App will allow fans to have their votes counted twice. The first “2-for-1 Day” was on June 16, and the remaining two will take place on June 22 and June 27. All “2-for-1 Days” will be designated from midnight ET – 11:59 p.m. ET.
