(Newser) – To get gamers off the couch and into politics, Rock the Vote is targeting Xbox players, CNET reports. Beginning Monday, Xbox Live users will be able to register to vote and answer surveys from their living rooms. "To realize our goal of registering 2 million young Americans by this fall, we need to go where young Americans are, and there's no doubt … many are on Xbox 360 and Xbox Live."
