Google tells you how to vote by state with a simple search

Election Day is November 8th.

You’re running out of excuses to not vote in this year’s US presidential election. Google has rolled out a new, state-specific voting guide for anyone who searches “how to vote” or other related queries. Google breaks down the voting process in your state, complete with information on early voting, mail-in ballots, requirements and deadlines. There’s also a drop-down menu that allows you to toggle among states.

Google rolled out a voter registration guide in July that also displayed state-specific information. The company says millions of people have used that tool and searches for voter registration information are up 190 percent nationwide compared with four years ago. Of course, internet penetration in the US has risen over that same time period.

Google is making the data behind its “how to vote” and “voter registration” searches available to the public, “so nonprofits and organizations promoting voter education can benefit and expand the reach of this critical information,” the company says. Apply for access right here.
