Microsoft wants Xbox 360 users to get involved in the upcoming elections, so in an effort to keep prospective young voters in the loop, they are teaming up with a number of outlets and gearing up to launch an “Election 2012 on Xbox LIVE” hub on the Xbox 360 dashboard. The hub is scheduled to go live next week on August 27th and will pull in news and polls, provide a way to interact with other users, and even allow users to watch the presidential debates and the Republican and Democratic national conventions, live.
