It’s nearing Election Day in the United States, and Google is rolling out special features on Search and YouTube to keep you in the loop throughout the day and night ahead.

NBC, PBS, MTV, Bloomberg, Telemundo, The Young Turks, and Complex News will each be streaming coverage live on YouTube beginning at 7:00PM ET. Those who watch Complex News’ livestream will notice live coverage being held at the YouTube Space NY.

If you’re already watching on television or another platform, Google Search can still be of use to you.

On Election Day, Google will have up-to-the-minute search results telling you how the many races in the nation are going. People who haven’t voted can check where their voting location before being glued to Search for updated results in every state. Google leveraged Search’s capabilities in the same way during the primaries.

Google encourages you to use #voteIRL on social media, too. The hashtag coincides with the company’s campaign to motivate people to really vote instead of just sharing thoughts on social media without action.

Everyone here at Talk Android reminds you to get out and vote! Even if you live in a state that is practically guaranteed to go a certain way, your vote matters.
