The ″Choose or Lose″ campaign has covered this year’s election campaign since the New Hampshire primary in a non-partisan effort to engage young people in politics and boost voter registration.
The Democratic candidates, Gov. Bill Clinton and Sen. Al Gore, already have appeared in ″Choose or Lose″ forums. Ross Perot and Vice President Dan Quayle have declined invitations to appear on MTV.
