Using Google for Election Coverage

28 Oct

In their never ending mission to provide the most comprehensive information on all things, Google has launched The Google Election Center. At a basic level a user can submit their address and find their polling center. For programmers an api is available for building custom apps.

The Google Election Center allows users to provide information on their district such as:

  • Polling place locations
  • Registration instructions
  • Ballot information
  • State and local election office contact information

A widget is available to those wanting to embed where to vote info on their website. Like many widgets you have some customization ability such as size, border color, a message and logo.

The bottom line is, GET OUT AND VOTE! Those that do can complain all they want to, those that don’t … Zip IT!
