You can add Google to the list of tech companies nudging you to get out to the polls today. The big G's search engine is the go-to source for our most pressing, and prosaic, questions. And once again, it can act as your Election Day info hub, built around your search queries.

Entering "how do I register to vote" or "how do I vote" will produce bitesize, state-specific instructions about the deadlines, requirements, eligibility, and logistics of casting a ballot where you live. And if your follow-up is "where do i vote?," Search will harness Google Maps to point you in the right direction. On top of that, Google is also adding digestible information on candidates -- including statements by those running for office on their legislative priorities -- and ballot measures.

When the dust settles on the Midterms, Google is hoping you'll head back to Search to watch the results roll in. A search for "Senate results" or "House results" today will provide a real-time summary of each chamber, while searching for any congressional or gubernatorial contest will offer results for those specific races.
