For those of us outside the United States, we’ve been seeing the news too and we all know that the big thing in America now is the presidential elections where either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be elected the 45th President after Pres. Barack Obama leaves office on the 20th of January, 2017.
There’s no way you turn on any of the major new stations and not see something about this. Well Google wants to make it easier for you to know who is winning and who’s not as results come in real time. In a post earlier today, Google announced a partnership with YouTube for live election results. “Starting when the polls close on Election Day, you will be able to find U.S. election results integrated right into your Google searches in over 30 languages around the world. You’ll also be able to see detailed updates and results of the Presidential, Senatorial, Congressional, Gubernatorial races as well as state-level referenda and ballot propositions.”
Many people including non Americans were able to watch the debates on YouTube through channels of some of the biggest names in American media and Google is promising to make it even more worth your while as you tune in to YouTube to watch the election coverage. Google is encouraging everyone to go out and vote tomorrow via its #voteIRL which now features President Obama who appeared in a short video asking all eligible American voters to go out and exercise their constitutional rights to vote.
