Google Earth Goes To The Polls

    October 23, 2006

Ionut. Alex reports that Google Earth now contains an information layer about the upcoming U.S. midterm elections.

Just enable the layer, which should now appear in your Layers panel, and zoom in to see all the pretty red, white and blue stars. Clicking on any of them reveals the candidates in that area, with links to web, image and news searches. I’d prefer if Google actually listed the more likely candidates first (as opposed to what appears to be a random ordering), but this is a really cool way to inform voters of the elections in their area.
