All ready for this year's upcoming Lok Sabha elections? If so then know that even Google is with its new 'Know Your Candidates' tool that's specifically meant for the Lok Sabha Elections. The new tool has been launched as a part of its elections portal offering 'google.co.in/elections.'
The new tool , which is already active ahead of the big day, will allow citizens easy access to necessary information about all the political candidates who are contesting from their constituency, alongside their Member of Parliament.
This 'Know Your Candidates' tool also integrates publicly available information that have been sourced from Indian organizations such as the Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR), PRS Legislative Research and Liberty Institute India.
"In the last five months, we have made a concerted effort to provide our users a one stop destination for all their information needs for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. With the launch of this tool, we have added all the important information of the contesting candidates with the help of groups such as ADR and PRS Legislative Research who have been doing a stellar job of collating all the important information about the candidates," said Rajan Anandan, VP and Managing Director of Google India, while commenting on the launch.
"We hope that making this information easily accessible will help Indian voters learn more about candidates running for public office and help them to make an informed decision."
The US-based search giant has also announced that the tool will be updated regularly to provide information about all candidates as they are getting finalized. It will also be made available at least a week before the voting day in each constituency.
