Google's new search feature is aimed to help US users learn about voter registration in their state. The search will help users learn how they can register to vote and about their state's requirements.

According to Google, the goal is to make sure everyone is able to participate in the political process. Each state has its own registration process and its own deadlines for voter registration prior to an election. The search feature will allow users to look at "How To," "Requirements" and "Deadlines" and select their state to receive the appropriate information. Google details all the necessary steps to register to vote according to the user's state registration requirements.

The launch of the new search feature comes as the Republican National Convention begins, followed by the Democratic National Convention. Google has streamlined the information necessary for users to register to vote in the upcoming election to increase voter registration and voter turn out.
