‘Where do I vote’ Google Doodle directs users where to cast their ballots

The Google Doodle on Google's US homepage today.

Internet search giant Google is directing Americans where to vote via a Google Doodle on its US homepage today, presidential election day.

By clicking on the red, white and blue doodle that depicts a stylised Google logo made up of ballots coming out of (or going into) a box, users are led to a link, a box in which they enter their addresses for where they are registered to vote.

Clicking ‘get my info’ sends voters to Google’s politics and elections page, with details about the user’s polling place and ballot summary, as well as links to ‘insights,’ YouTube Live, and other election-related information.

Other links help users figure out if they’re actually registered to vote and how to actually go about voting.

Voters across America are casting their ballots today to elect either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney as the next US president.
