Vote or Die: XBL users download crap-ton of U.S. voter registration forms



Gamasutra reports that Microsoft and Rock the Vote, a youth voting awareness group, distributed about 55,000 U.S. voter registration forms through Xbox Live.

Moreover, according to an XBL opinion poll of about 100,000 users, 43 percent of voters said they would vote for Obama and Biden, compared to 31 percent for McCain and Palin. The other 26 percent voted on behalf of Mike Haggar for President.

Free gamer pics of the parties' campaign logos were available for download as well. I don't know about you, but I saw many gamers swap their gamer pics during this past month to pledge allegiance to their presidential preferences.

Although it wasn't required to download a registration form to download a gamer pic, it's certainly refreshing to see the youth vote finally garnering some attention.

Hey, it's certainly more interesting than Nintendo's thought-provoking questions on the Everybody Votes Channel. I can't wait to hear which America prefers: carpal tunnel syndrome or midget amputee porn?
