Googling Your Polling Place? It Pays To Double-Check

Today is elections day and Google has been touting their wonderful Google Election Center to aid voters in finding the polling place locations. The problem is, Google might send you to the wrong polling place, ultimately costing you time, instead of saving you time, in voting on today’s U.S. elections.

Fast Company posted some examples of Google sending people to the wrong polling place. I know Gary Price of ResourceShelf sent us several examples of wrong locations in Google’s database. Gary event sent corrections to Google on Sunday, some of which have been fixed.

Bottom line, if you are using Google to find your polling place, it might pay to double check to make sure that is really where you should go to vote.

Postscript: Gary Price now has published a story with a lot more detail. I recommend you check it out over here.
