When the National League All-Star team roster takes the field on Tuesday, July 16, 2024 to start the 2024 MLB All-Star Game, it is probably fair to guess that the Atlanta Braves will be well represented. While the Braves haven't been as dominant a squad as they have been in recent years, Braves country always shows out during the All-Star voting and it doesn't hurt that they have some of the best/most well-known players at multiple positions despite injuries to guys like Ronald Acuna Jr. and Spencer Strider who would normally be near locks to make it.

However, for the Braves to be well-represented in the game, their fans do have to put in the work and actually vote them in now that the ballot is released and voting is open. Here is how voting is going to work for the 2024 All-Star Game and how fans can vote their favorite Braves in.

2024 MLB All-Star Voting Schedule

Dates

Results revealed (date/time)

Phase One

June 5-June 27

June 27, 6 PM EST

Phase Two

June 30-July 3

July 3, 7 PM EST

As has become customary, the ASG voting is broken into two phases this year. Phase One opened up on June 5th and will run through the 27th. Once that phase is done, the top two vote-getters at each position are announced (other than in the outfield where the top six outfielders will get revealed) and they will move on two Phase Two. Importantly, the two players that received the most votes overall in each league from Phase One (one each in the AL and NL) will automatically win starting spots on their league's ASG roster.

After that, Phase Two opens up on June 30 and runs through July 3 where the ASG rosters will be revealed that evening. Pitchers and All-Star reserves (each league ends up with 23 such players) are selected via a Player Ballot as well as by the commissioner's office with the latter being done to insure that every team has at least one All-Star representative.

2024 MLB All-Star Voting Rules

The rules are actually pretty straightforward. Your ballot is associated with your email address and each email address can vote up to five times in a given 24 hour period during Phase One. For the particularly ambitious Braves fans out there, using multiple email addresses as well as begging your loved ones to help out is the play. If MLB detects voters using bots or other automated processes to vote, those votes get thrown out so don't do that.

During the second phase, the limit shrinks to one ballot per day per valid email address which means you will get a total of four possible votes during Phase Two. There are rules governing whether or not a guy gets traded or signs with a different club, but those are niche cases that don't come up often.

How to Vote for the 2024 MLB All-Star Game

Voting for the 2024 MLB All-Star Game is extremely easy. All you have to do is go to the ASG ballot website and make your selections at each position. Again, you can vote up to five times per day in Phase One and once per day in Phase Two. Just make sure you cast votes at each position and that you actually submit your ballot to make sure you vote is counted.

After that, it is just rinse and repeat as much as you are able. There will be a new ballot released for Phase Two that only contains the finalists which might mess up your browser bookmarks, so make sure you go to the site for the fresh URL on June 30 to make sure you can vote the maximum allotted times.
