Google Adds Election Tools To Google Search

Posted by at 10:00 am on November 6, 2018

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.
  • 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.
