Google Will Now Help You Register To Vote

You're out of excuses.

Google is about to make registering to vote super easy.

On Monday, the search engine is introducing a search feature that will facilitate users looking to register to vote before the presidential election in November, The Verge and The Next Web reported.

If someone Googles “register to vote,” the phrase will yield thorough instructions on how a person can register in each U.S. state, including requirements and deadlines.

Jacob Schonberg, a Google product manager, said that it won’t matter which state you’re in or how you cast your ballot. Users will be able to “find the step-by-step information they need to register correctly and on time — right at the top of the Search page and in the Google app,” he said, according to The Verge.

Google confirmed that the feature will launch Monday at 6 a.m. Pacific time (9 a.m. Eastern.)

Google has also rolled out a tool that will provide information regarding the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.

When users search either convention on the Google app, they’ll find an event summary, list of speakers and information about the party’s nominee as well as “social media posts and a YouTube live stream video,” The Verge reported.

The Huffington Post will be streaming the events in 360-degree video.
