Get your questions ready, because the President is taking them--at least for one night.
As part of MTV’s "Power of 12" election campaign, President Barack Obama will address the concerns of young voters in "ASK OBAMA LIVE: An MTV Interview with the President," which will air live this Friday, October 26 at 5 p.m. ET/ Tape Delayed PT on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hits and MTV Jams. The special will also air on MTV.com and MTV’s mobile platform. MTV News Correspondent Sway Calloway will sit down with the President in the White House, while fellow correspondent Andrew Jenks will be on-the-ground at a college campus in Washington D.C. with a group of young voters. MTV.com will also host a live-stream discussion with Andrew Jenks before and after the special.
Beginning today, young people can submit questions for the President on MTV’s Facebook page. Forty-five million 18-29 year olds are eligible to vote in this election, representing the largest potential voting bloc in the country. “ASK OBAMA LIVE: an MTV Interview with the President” is the first time in this campaign that either President Obama or Governor Romney have focused solely on young voter’s top concerns--including jobs, the cost of college, rising student loan debt and social issues like LGBTQ rights and immigration--on a nationally televised program. MTV also invited Governor Romney to participate in a live, 30-minute special as well, and hopes to conduct a sit-down interview with him in advance of Election Day.
