Google US Voter Info Site: Mapping Your Way to The Polls.
As election day looms, many are still not sure quite where to vote. Google has created a site which uses its own Google Maps to help voters find the polling place closest to them: the aptly-named US Voter Info Site.
I gave it a whirl using my registered US address, and the results are indeed correct. Cool. I'm adding a screenshot to the left. As it were.
t's hard to believe that in 2008, information so important to U.S. citizens and the democratic process isn't well organized on the web. To solve this problem, we've released our US Voter Info site, an effort to simplify and centralize voting locations and registration information.
The site uses Google Maps and allows a visitor to enter an address and get results that provide the location of the voter's polling place.
Mobile phone users can get the same information by going to m.google.com/elections or searching for the word vote with their addresses on Google Maps for Mobile.
Google also offers the mapping site code for free to groups that want to include it on their Web sites, according to the company.
