In preparation for the upcoming 2018 US midterm elections, Snapchat will be displaying polling stations on its election day Snap Map. Besides guiding users to polling stations, the election day Snap Map will also add a social aspect as it indicates where friends on Snapchat are voting. The feature will also apply filters to a user's Bitmoji and put them in a special election-themed costume when presented on the map.

The election day Snap Map is just part of Snapchat's continued effort to encourage young voters to go off to the polls for the 2018 midterm elections. Snapchat will be partnering with Get to the Polls for its election day Snap Map to assist the app in running its live election night coverage.
