Broadcasting your vote

(AP) - Tweet the Vote! According to a study published by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, 22 percent of registered voters have told others which candidates they support on a social networking site like Twitter or Facebook.

Those broadcasting their political views and votes are from both parties - 25 percent of President Barack Obama's supporters have posted their preferences and 20 percent of Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's supporters have done the same.

Forty-five percent of registered voters ages 18-29 say they have been encouraged to vote for another candidate via social media, the Pew study says.
