Google Aims for General Elections India

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

General Elections are the biggest thing which is going to come up this summer. People have very less information about all the constituancies. Now Google india is helping out people by providing some valuable information about the upcoming Elections through their dedicated website.The website that would provide information to the voters about their constituency and the candidates, is available both in English and Hindi. Earlier there was a site announced by Yahoo for the same purpose.

A voter may visit the Google India elections centre by logging onto After first selecting his or her constituency and viewing the location on a Google Map, the voter may examine data highlighting - for instance - any changes in literacy, poverty and employment rates in the constituency since the previous general election. The voter may then consider the educational credentials and attendance record of his or her current Member of Parliament and some of the qualifications of those candidates contesting in this year’s election.

Voter can also search for his or her name in the voter rolls to confirm his or her registration and to receive information about the accompanying polling station. According to Shailesh Rao, managing director, Google India, “Being an informed voter is a prerequisite for the healthy functioning of India’s democracy. While this is especially true during all elections cycles, we have this year observed many initiatives that have sought to promote access to election-related information in India. Keeping in mind our global mission of organising the world’s information and making it universally accessible and useful, we have created this elections centre to highlight some of the most important information available to voters in India today. Indian voters have the right to information about their constituencies and candidates, and we are confident that the website will yield a positive change in voting patterns during the upcoming general elections.”
