Voting Help from Google Maps

Google Election Center

Google have released an experimental service called Google Election Center that lets election officials provide data directly to Google. Developers can then access the data by embedding an open source Election Center gadget on their websites, or use the gadget code or an API to build their own application.

The Election Center gadget allows voters to enter their address and find their nearest polling station on a Google Map. The API allows developers to retrieve polling location and candidate information for a specific election, given an address.

The Google Election Center can also be accessed on mobile phones from the dedication mobile site m.google.com/elections
