(Newser) – Voters hoping to get a question in to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Mike Huckabee or Ron Paul before Super Tuesday will get their chance tonight when the candidates appear via satellite on an MTV/Myspace forum. John McCain and Mitt Romney were also invited to the event, the fourth in the "Dialogues" series and the first with multiple candidates.

During the "Super Dialogues" show, to be transmitted live from Times Square, the candidates will face questions submitted from a studio audience and from online viewers. An instant polling system will give the presidential hopefuls some real-time feedback on their responses. It's been said before—inaccurately—but pundits believe the under-30 vote will be a key factor in this election.
