Google Maps Can Help You Find Where To Vote

The presidential voting process is officially less than two weeks away and it is getting closer.  What Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) found on their Trends service is that many people do not know where to find voting information or where the closest place to vote is located.  Google now has a solution and it’s called the US Voter Info Site.

On the US Voter Info site, users can find out where to vote and where to register.  If you’ll be absent or away from the country on voting day, Google will show you how to get an absentee ballot.  In order to get this project off the ground, Google worked with the League of Women Voters, the Pew Charitable Trusts, and the Voting Information Project.

If you enter your home address on on the Google US Voter Info site, then Google will show you where the closest place to vote is located.  This is the most important election of our generation. Make sure you exercise your right to vote on November 4th.

Google CEO, Eric Schmidt recently decided to endorse Barack Obama.
