google-election-day

Gearing up for the US Presidential Election on November 8, Google has announced plans to help you stay up to date on the minute-by-minute action. Google is integrating election results directly into searches in more than 30 languages which will arrive soon after polls close.

Google said that you’ll also be able to “see detailed updates and results of the Presidential, Senatorial, Congressional, Gubernatorial races as well as state-level referenda and ballot propositions,” in its announcement post, and mentioned that there had been a 233% increase in the search query “how to vote” compared to the last election in 2012.

In the past few months, Google has helped inform people on how to vote, who’s on their ballot, and how they can find their local polling areas in both English and Spanish, as well as encouraging Americans to vote with YouTube’s #voteIRL slogan.

Election coverage begins tomorrow at 7 p.m. ET with YouTube live streams arriving from a number of major news channels.

How are you going to keep up with the polls? Let us know in the comments.
