Why wait until Thursday for the first votes to come in? MySpace holds its first online presidential primary on Tuesday and Wednesday, with the results posted on Thursday in the hours before the Iowa caucus.
The “virtual primary,” as it is being called, will start at 3:01 a.m. EST on Tuesday, and polls will close at 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday.
Votes will be gathered online at the MySpace Impact Channel, (http://impact.myspace.com).
The vote is the latest effort in the online community to play a significant role in the election.
MySpace has teamed with MTV in hosting presidential forums. YouTube has co-hosted presidential debates with CNN. And on Saturday, Facebook co-hosts a presidential debate in New Hampshire with ABC News.
