Google continues to do what it can to get the vote out, posting a doodle yesterday and today that serves as a reminder to vote in the US 2016 elections.
The doodle leads to a search for “where do I vote,” surfacing an interactive tool that helps searchers locate polling locations.
Google’s “Where to Vote” tool was originally launched on October 13, when Google rolled out its state-by-state voting guide. In addition to “where do I vote” queries, the tool also shows up for similar searches like “where to vote” and “where is my polling place.”
After honoring Walter Cronkite last Friday, Google posted the following “US Elections 2016 Reminder Day 1” doodle on Sunday, two days prior to Election Day, November 8.

This slightly modified version of the Election Day reminder doodle was shared today:

Google reports on its Google Doodle Blog that it plans to share election results in real time tomorrow: “When the polls close on Election Day on November 8, you’ll also be able to find real-time US election results integrated right into your Google searches in over 30 languages around the world.”
