A split vote is a strategy employed in Survivor by larger alliances in an attempt to avoid one of their own being voted out by the use of a Hidden Immunity Idol. The strategy involves the alliance casting an equal or near-equal number of votes on two different members of the opposing alliance, theoretically ensuring that one of them is voted out regardless of whom the idol is played on. In order for the split to work, the alliance must have a two-thirds majority.

The first tribe to conduct this in an ORG was the Manu Alliance in Survivor: Hawaii, when they attempted to flush an idol to which they thought DB had. Since he didn't have it, he was voted out in a 4-2-1 vote. It later became a recurring strategy throughout the ORG series.

In Survivor: Polynesia, in addition to avoiding the Hidden Immunity Idol, the split vote was used to avoid Abduction Island. In Polynesia, the castaway with the second highest number of votes was sent to Abduction Island, where they could be abducted into the other tribe.
