Google launched their new voter information search this month. This is a very beneficial and timely tool considering the voter suppression tactics and voter ID court decisions recently. I discovered it accidentally while researching voter registration information in North Carolina. Here's how to use it.
Enable your device's location. In the Google search engine type, "Voter ID." This will display the latest information on voter ID and even provide voter registration information.
You can also type "voter ID" in the search box with your state of choice to receive this information.
My Washington, DC location displays more than the registration dates, it includes the DC Election Official's office contact number, military and overseas voter information and more. You can also search "how do i vote" or "register to vote" to obtain this information.
Stay in tune with Google during this important election season by visiting YouTube.com/Elections and Google.com/Elections. These outlets will provide real-time feeds for the latest news, analysis, live candidate debates, and trending videos.
If you are into learning facts, trends and reading graphs, check out +GooglePolitics on Google+. They have a set of infographs that describe the trends of voters.
There is no reason to be uninformed this election season. It is all available by typing a few simple words from your phone or desktop.
