The Pew Charitable Trusts have partnered with a number of big internet properties to help users find their polling place with a new google map tool.
“Get to the Polls” (www.gettothepolls.com) is available to help voters find all the information they need before voting Nov. 4.
Get to the Polls, powered by the Google Civic Information application programming interface, or API, will allow voters to find their official polling place, hours of operation, and full ballot summary based on their residential address.
“We joined forces with The Internet Association and technology powerhouses from across the Web to make official election information available where people look for it most—online and on mobile devices,” said Zach Markovits, who manages Pew’s Voting Information Project, a partnership of state election officials, Pew, and Google. “Thanks to our technology partners and election officials from across the country, voters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia will have this information at their fingertips, freely and easily available.”
Today is the day so go vote!
