In anticipation of the US midterm elections on Tuesday, November 2, Google has created a new Election Center mobile site for all eligible US citizens to determine polling centers and provide information about candidates running in a users specific location.

Android smartphone and iPhone users will be able to visit the Google Election Center by entering into their mobile browser. The site will then presents users with an address prompt, displaying a Google Map of the users local polling station once entered.

It’s great to see Google encouraging people to go out and vote. Introducing a portal like the Election Center will encourage citizens who might have been undecided on whether to vote to locate their nearest polling place and make that all important difference.
