On December 3 at 7pm ET, Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) will be the third presidential candidate, and first Republican, to participate in the groundbreaking MySpace/MTV Presidential Dialogue series. The interactive Dialogue will take place at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, NH with an in-person audience of university students, and for the first time, be simultaneously broadcast live on MTV, MySpace, MTVâ€™s ChooseOrLose.com, cross-carriers on MTV Mobile, and translated live into Spanish via ImpreMediaâ€™s LaVibra.
Myspace.com/election2008 and www.ChooseOrLose.com is now accepting user-submitted video questions (30 seconds or less) on the issues that matter most to young voters in the upcoming elections. Submissions will be accepted through Sunday, December 2, and the video with the highest ratings and community response on Monday will be posed to Sen. McCain during the evening dialogue.
A revolutionary online polling tool, powered by Flektor, allows the online audience to instantaneously register its approval or disapproval of candidate responses throughout the event. The Flektor tool enables the seriesâ€™ industry-leading pollsters, John McLaughlin and Geoffrey Garin, to custom tailor in-depth response options for the online audience, providing viewers the means to register immediate feedback on the candidateâ€™s responses and help to shape the direction of the forum. Poll results are displayed on the screen and viewers can compare their opinions to those of the entire community through a â€œpopular voteâ€ function.
