With the 2012 Election Season heating up and the Democratic and Republican conventions in full swing, Microsoft is continuing to demonstrate its commitment to the American democratic process. On Monday we told you about Microsoft’s involvement in the MyVote app for the State of Washington, and today, we’re excited to tell you about Microsoft’s Election 2012 on Xbox LIVE. Announced last week just in time for the peak of election season, Election 2012 on Xbox LIVE is a Microsoft initiative poised to provide an immersive and interactive experience during one of the most important events this year, the presidential election, while giving users an opportunity to have a voice and actively participate in the electoral process. Through the Xbox 360 platform, users will be able to interact in real-time during the three presidential debates, as well as enjoy live feeds from the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.
Additionally, Xbox LIVE members will also be able to participate by responding to poll questions throughout live programming and other unique election events hosted on our service during this campaign season.
