Google has updated search engine features to provide voters information about where they can find a voting facility or a drop box near their locations to cast votes in the presidential election.

"Search for things like “early voting locations“ or “ballot drop boxes near me“ and you'll find details on where you can vote in person or return your mail-in ballot, whether you're voting early or on Election Day," Yunhan Xu, a Google product manager, wrote in a blog post published Friday.

Yunhan added that the company's virtual assistant can also give details to a mobile device.

The technology firm plans to add over 200K locations and corresponding data across its databases through the Voting Information Project, a joint effort with state election authorities and the nonprofit Democracy Works organization.
