Google Brings Election Tools to Google Search
Google today rolled out several tools to help Americans vote in the 2018 mid-term elections. There are three components to the information being offered by Google: how to vote; who are the candidates and what are the issues; and what are the results. Anyone who searches for "how do I register to vote" or "how do I vote" will be given detailed information on registration deadlines, requirements, eligibility, and the logistics of casting a ballet at your local polling place. Searching for "where do I vote" should show people the right location. Need help understanding what's at stake? Google has created knowledge panels about every candidate and ballot measure in clear, easy-to-understand language. The panels will highlight candidates' platforms, statements, and legislative priorities. Last, Google will help people follow the results. People can search for "Senate results" or "House results" to see up-to-the-minute updates as results begin to come in. These results will include a real-time summary of each chamber. People can also seek out information on gubernatorial elections.
