This election year is crucial to our future and because of the significance this election holds, big tech companies are partnering up with the White House to make it easier to register to vote. They are reaching out to us through all platforms to vote! We’ve seen countless celebrity endorsements, online registrations with the click of a button, and easy to read infographics about each candidate.
As a millennial whose future will be deeply affected by this election cycle, it makes me happy to have all these sources available to me. Whoever you decide to vote for, remember to exercise your right to vote and let your voice be heard!
Most social media outlets have been bombarding us with advertisements reminding us to vote; Kendall Jenner has told us to vote via Instagram ads. Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton created filters for us to use on debate night, and we can even register to vote via Snapchat!
Even Google is joining in on helping us perform our civic duties as Americans. For those of you who don’t know where to go vote, just look it up on Google and you’ll get your nearest polling stations. Google will be using your location to provide you with options of where to go vote. They will also show you who is showing up on your ballot because different locations will have different representatives running for their respective counties. The company is making sure to allow you to be as informed as possible and most importantly to encourage you to vote.
The amount of money many companies, especially tech companies, are putting into this election only goes to show how crucial these elections are. Come November 8th, GO VOTE!
