This year, voting was initially announced to last through April 26. However, it abruptly ended on April 16. Even the Instagram post below from the Rock Hall states voting ends on April 26. Additionally, Future Rock Legends shared in a tweet from February 12 that the Fan Vote closed on April 26. Unlike in previous years, fans got to vote for up to seven nominees every day. Previously, the choices were capped at five nominees. The Fan Vote was first launched in 2013. Per the Rock Hall, "There have been over four million fan votes cast over the past 10 years, with 64% of the Fan Vote ballot (35 of 55) earning induction in the same year; and 86% (38 of 44 unique nominations) eventually earning induction. In 2022, the entire Top 5 earned induction – the only time that has happened." Once voting closes, the top five vote artists in the Fan Vote will create what is called a "Fans' Ballot." It will be counted among the other ballots that various artists, historians, and music industry professionals fill out and submit.
