Whether you’ve tuned in to all the Republican debates so far or are cooling it on the sidelines until the action really heats up next summer, MTV News wants to talk to you about the upcoming 2012 presidential election.
We’re filming a documentary about the 2012 race and are looking for young people to take part in a show chronicling how millennials are feeling about the race between President Obama and his eventual Republican rival. The program will shoot between November 28 and December 11 nationwide, and anyone 18 and older interested in taking part should firstname.lastname@example.org and put “Election 2012” in the subject heading.
Prospective participants should also include the following information: name, 18+ (yes or no), gender, phone number and hometown, as well as whether or not you are in school; if so, what school do you attend, and if you are currently working, what is your job?
We would also like to know which issues, if any, you are passionate about (jobs, health care, education, immigration, etc.) and how you would describe your views on the 2012 election in one sentence.
Producers also ask that you include a picture of yourself. The questions are intended to ensure that participants represent a diversity of interests and political views.
In the midst of ongoing financial difficulties, President Obama is gearing up to launch his re-election campaign against a field of Republican contenders. Though the lead has changed a number of times over the past few months, at press time the leading contenders on the GOP side include former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, ex-House leader Newt Gingrich, former Godfather’s Pizza boss Herman Cain and fading Texas Governor Rick Perry.
