LOS ANGELES (AP) - So many viewers voted after Monday's "Dancing With the Stars" finale that they temporarily overwhelmed the show's voting system.

ABC says "a record amount of activity" overloaded its online and telephone voting systems Monday night, and that "some viewers reported experiencing difficulties registering their votes" for the show's finale.

The network said in a statement Tuesday that the issue "affected each finalist equally" and "was promptly addressed." Voting times were not extended.

Bristol Palin's improbable run to the finals despite mediocre scores has been championed by some conservative bloggers running get-out-the-vote campaigns. She comes into Tuesday's finale in third place. Jennifer Grey leads with a perfect score and Massey is in second place.
