Here are some of the official terms and conditions MTV posted for this year’s awards.
1. Voters eligible to vote should be a US resident and should be at least 13 years old.
2. Employees, agents or representatives of Viacom Media Networks are not allowed to vote.
3. Votes for the Nominee preference are cast on http://movieawards.mtv.com/. Mobile users can access the site via http://m.mtv.com/movieawards/.

There are two ways to vote for your nominee preferences. One is online and the second is via Twitter, Instagram and Vine, although the latter option is applicable to voting for Favorite Character only.

To vote online, voters can simply click on the button next to the Nominee’s image or video. After it’s clicked, voters need only read and follow the next set of instructions to complete the voting process.
Voting via social media accounts, in which the account must be set to “public”, requires the use of hashtags corresponding to the nominee of choice. Voters may use the following hashtags to vote for their Favorite Character: #votetris, #votekatniss, #votekhan, #voteloki and #voteveronicamars.

What’s great about the system is one can vote as many times as he or she wants to as long as its within the voting period. The voting period started on March 6 and ended on April 13, 2014.
