Google’s India election map helps keep track of over 500 million votes
It’s election season in India and Google is counting the votes. Not in an official capacity, but the tech giant is running a real-time tally of the numbers and placing them on an interactive map to keep track of the statistics on a regional scale. Whether you’re participating in the process as one of the election’s 500 million-plus voters, or you’re someone who follows global politics, this layout is a sight to behold.
To bring this project together, Google has leaned on Nielsen to help keep track of the results as they happen. The portal also provides fast access to each district’s local votes as they roll in, making it fairly easy to follow an entire nation’s transition of authority.
