Google officially announced its online information hub for political elections. The website is dedicated exclusively to elections and includes new articles sorted by candidates and issues; links to voter resources and YouTube politics channel; and a dashboard that will allow you to search trends, news mentions and YouTube views for each candidate.
The debate has raged over people’s right to vote. While the Fifteen and Nineteenth Amendments gave the right to vote by race or sex respectively, for years Poll Taxes, Literacy Tests and Jim Crow laws sought to restrict these freedoms. The National Voters Registration Act of 1993 allowed qualified voters to register when applying for or renewing their driver’s license.
I anticipate a not-too-distant future when qualified voters will be allowed to not only register through political online sites such as Google, but will also be allowed to vote in Presidential and General Elections.
