From the "Situation Room," Wolf will tackle topics like why your vote matters even if you don't live in a swing state, whether separation of church and state is still an American value, the pros and cons of voting for a third party candidate, how young people can influence the election and why they should care about it.

· Decoding the Election: MTV is continuing to help its audience decode the election throughout the final stretch with a series of daily items on MTV News, Powerof12.org, and MTV ACT ranging from weekly "Fantasy Election '12" playbook reports, the "What You Need to Know About" or #WYNTKA series, new content from "The Week in Politics Uncensored," and more.
