Where to Vote
Google has rolled out a new feature to help US voters find authoritative information on where to cast their ballot, regardless of their preferred voting method.
Starting this week, when people go to Google Search, Maps or Assistant for information on where to vote, they’ll find helpful features that show the voting locations closest to them. On Google, searches like “early voting locations” or “ballot drop boxes near me” will show details on where people can vote in person or return their mail-in ballot, whether they’re voting early or on Election Day.
After someone has selected a voting location or ballot drop box in their area, they can click through from Google Search to Google Maps for quick information about how far it is, how to get there, and voting hours. Similarly, if people search for their voting location in Google Maps, they’ll have easy access to the feature in Search to help them confirm where they can cast their vote.
The official information in this feature comes from the Voting Information Project, a partnership between Democracy Works, a nonprofit, nonpartisan civic organization, and state election officials. Through the Voting Information Project, Google has more than 200,000 voting locations available across the country. As more locations become available, or if there are changes, Google will continue to update the information provided across Google Search, Assistant and Maps.
