Fans can vote for the 2019 NBA All-Star Game beginning Christmas Day.

The NBA announced a partnership with Google designed to get more fans involved in balloting across multiple platforms.

Voting ends on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 21 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Fans can vote by searching on Google, through the Google Assistant and via the NBA App and NBA.com.

The league is advertising five “2-for-1 Days,” on which votes for players count twice — Jan. 3, Jan. 4, Jan. 10, Jan. 11 and Jan. 21.

Fans account for 50 percent of the vote, with media and players accounting for 25 percent each.

TNT will reveal the NBA All-Star Game starters, including the two captains, on Thursday, Jan. 24 during TNT NBA Tip-Off, and reserves are announced by the network one week later.

The game’s captains will participate in a draft of teams for the second consecutive year.

The captains will be the All-Star starter from each conference who receives the most fan votes in his conference.
