Read our FAQ on this year’s revamped balloting format, which includes two phases of fan voting to determine the All-Star starters, and the ability to vote through Google Search.

ST. PETERSBURG -- With all the excitement and fanfare that surrounded Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s debut, there is hope that baseball's No. 1 prospect's newfound popularity could carry into All-Star Game voting, which opened to the fans on Tuesday.

Guerrero, whose father and namesake appeared in the Midsummer Classic a total of nine times, made this year’s ballot as a third baseman. He figures to face stiff competition on the American League side from Alex Bregman, Matt Chapman and Jose Ramirez, among others.

“He could, that’s for sure,” Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said of Guerrero making his first All-Star team. “He’ll have a chance. Plus, he’s gonna be really good someday.”

Based on sheer popularity, Guerrero may have the best chance to make the team among Blue Jays players. Freddy Galvis may also be a contender.

“We haven’t had a position player having that good of a year, but Galvis has been steady,” Montoyo said.

Fans may vote in "The Primary" at and all 30 club sites, the MLB At Bat and MLB Ballpark apps up to five times in any 24-hour period. Fans in the US and Canada can also vote on Google Search for every position, or up to 17 unique players per day, by searching "MLB Vote" or the names of their favorite players. Primary voting ends at 4 p.m. ET on Friday, June 21.

The top three vote-getters at each position (including nine outfielders) per league will move on to "The Starters Election," which begins at noon ET on Wednesday, June 26. The votes will reset for a 28-hour voting window that ends at 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 27. Starters for the 2019 Midsummer Classic will be unveiled on ESPN that night at 7 ET. The pitchers and reserves will be announced on Sunday, June 30, at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Then on Tuesday, July 9, during the 2019 All-Star Game presented by Mastercard, fans may visit and the 30 club sites to submit their choices for the Ted Williams Most Valuable Player Award presented by Chevrolet.
