Google has launched a politics and elections portal, Google Elections, where it aggregates news from various websites on the Internet and also provides data and logs, which compares the trend of one candidate with another candidate – in Google searches, Google News and also on Youtube videos.
Google’s Youtube also offers a politics related channel, Youtube Politics, containing various videos, involving various candidates and promotions, news, etc.
PBS News hour also shows a list of all political events in the 2012 Political Calendar, with the help of Google Calendar, and is also featured on Google’s election website.
Google Election Toolkit offers a set of tools for various categories of people, like Media Consultant, Journalist, Developer, Campaign Manager, IT or New Media Manager. The “tools”, if you are wondering, is nothing but Google Maps, Google+ Pages, Youtube, Google Adwords, etc – tools whichever suit these professions – as thought by Google.
Google Elections is also on Google+, so feel free to add them to your circle.
