MTV Rocks The Vote, Topeka

By  | 

MTV is trying to reach the younger generation of voters, including those right here in Topeka. Stars of the MTV staple "The Real World" were at Washburn University Tuesday night on the "Rock The Vote" tour.

The network is using its pull with younger viewers to showcase the importance of political involvement. It is a non-partisan effort to get students to register to vote, and exercise that right.

Alton and Veronica from the reality show may not be political experts -- but they have clout with the youth. Alton noted that MTV has gone from music television to reality television to performing community services.
