Google tool shows candidates and voting locations
Google is really beefing up its efforts to help people get the information they need for current events of late. Yesterday we talked a bit about a
that Google released to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Today we're talking a bit about the new Google Voter Information Tool.
This tool is designed specifically to tell you where in your local area you can go to vote. The tool also runs down major candidates for all the elections in your state and for the nation. The voter information tool allows users to enter their address to find information on their specific polling place, early voting locations, ballot information, and more.
The ballot information even offers links to the candidate's social media sites along with voting rules and requirements. The tool is designed to be embedded on any website and uses open source coding allowing developers to modify it to their needs.
Google is also working with media partners to ensure that the tool is accessible across the web, and Google specifically calls out Foursquare and AT&T for doing "great work" building apps on its Civic Information API.
