The manifestos are out and party leaders are busy touring the country. Even tech companies are doing what they can to help you choose a side ahead of next month's General Election. Twitter rolled out its political emoji, lovingly referred to as "hashflags", earlier this month, but Google's just launched a valuable resource that tells you all of the election candidates in your area. If you pull up a Google search and enter the words "who is on the uk ballot," the search giant will ask you to enter your postcode or constituency before displaying an alphabetic list of all the candidates gunning for your vote. As expected, the 2015 Election campaign has been the most web-friendly yet -- it's just a shame online voting won't happen any time soon.
