Young people under the age of 18 usually don’t get to experience the joys of voting in the United States. But today teens on the Teen Grid of Second Life can head to Global Kids island (click here to teleport) to vote for their favorite presidential candidate. A virtual voting booth, created by teen Ryan Dayton, will be automatically tabulating votes for the next 24 hours until midnight PST. Other voting booths will be scattered across the Teen Grid today as well.
We’ll post the results to to our blog Holymeatballs.org as they become available.
