The world’s largest democracy, India, is reporting its election results today and, as ever, Google is making the information easier to parse. The search firm has put all the data together on a map so you can watch the results of 500 million-plus votes as they are announced.

The company has teamed up with Nielsen, which supplies the data for its live results portal. Clicking on a district pulls up the latest local voting data, while you can view the current standings from a national level — including all 543 constituencies — too.
