It’s election season and Google is doing its part to help you “rock the vote.” No, the search kingpin isn’t endorsing a specific candidate, instead it’s doing what it does best — help people search the internet for information. The company’s open source Voter Information Tool is designed to help people research candidates and locate polling places. In an effort to reach the masses, Google is partnering with companies such as Foursquare and AT&T. Election Day can be a chaotic event to say the least. Hopefully this powerful new web-based tool will make things run a little smoother for frantic voters trying to beat the clock.
