On Friday Google has announced that it was introducing new features across its search engines, maps, and voice assistant so that Voters in the US can find their nearest voting location.
Google said via a blog post, Details on in-person voting or returning mail-in ballots can be found under searches with “early voting locations” or “ballot drop boxes near me,”. adding the data was pulled from a joint project between state election officials and non-partisan, non-profit civic group Democracy Works.
Google said its voice assistant would also share details on where to vote nearby if prompted with the question, while Google Maps would provide directions and voting hours for the locations.
