Google is planning on launching an online election service to cover all aspects of the European Parliament elections in June. If it is anything like the Google service for the US elections then it should give viewers the chance to stay up to date on the latest campaign maps, news, videos and blog posts from the election trail.
This is a step in the right direction for European politics, hopefully increasing interest in the EP elections and voting turnout in June, which at the moment looks to be very low if the Eurobarometer is anything to go by. Especially as it seems only a tiny 4% of Europeans are aware of which month these will be held, and bringing up the rear, only 3% of us Brits knew they were to be held next year. We can only hope this is something the Google Gadget can improve on.
