The Orioles want you to vote early, vote often and - perhaps most importantly - “Vote Orange” to send deserving O’s to the All-Star Game in Minnesota on July 15.
Online voting has begun here, and in-stadium voting begins Sunday at Camden Yards.
Who’s on the ballot? First baseman Chris Davis, second baseman Ryan Flaherty, shortstop J.J. Hardy, third baseman Manny Machado, catcher Matt Wieters, designated hitter Nelson Cruz, and outfielders David Lough, Adam Jones and Nick Markakis.
Fans can cast up to 35 times per email address, and those who vote at least 25 times and “favorite” or “other favorite” club will receive an online promo code valid for $10 off a box seat or $5 off a reserved seat for any game in the Orioles’ series against the Los Angeles Angels from July 29-31. With each promo code valid for the online purchase of up to four seats, the offer could save fans as much as $40 on their tickets.
In addition, fans who vote the maximum 35 times online and select the Orioles as their “favorite” or “other favorite” club will automatically be entered into the 2014 Orioles All-Star Sweepstakes with a chance to win an All-Star Game jersey signed by the 2014 Orioles All-Stars.
Online voting concludes on July 3 at 11:59 p.m. In-park balloting runs from April 27-June 15.
Ballots will be distributed to fans in their seats during each game; however, fans looking to take part in the Vote Orange rewards program for the chance to win prizes should visit the Vote Orange booth on Eutaw Street.
Fans who complete as few as 50 paper ballots and submit them by the sixth inning will be eligible to win an autographed photo at each home game and have their name displayed on the center field video board as the Voter of the Game. Rewards for higher vote totals include buttons, t-shirts, autographed baseballs, field box seats and on-field post-game access, and a catered suite. The top voter during the seven-week program will have the opportunity for a meet and greet with one of the Orioles’ 2014 All-Stars.
The Vote Orange booth will be located on Eutaw Street outside of the Camden Lobby, where fans can register for the program and pick up their ballots. Fans must register for the program and return their ballots on or before June 15 to be eligible for the rewards. In case of inclement weather, the booth will be moved inside the concourse adjacent to Gate D.

Last year, Davis, Hardy and Jones were selected in the fan vote to represent the Orioles at the All-Star Game at Citi Field. That sets the bar high for this year’s balloting, so consider yourself challenged.
