Google is now offering an easy way to learn about about all the potential candidates in the upcoming election.

Beginning Thursday in the U.S., a simple search on Google of "who's on my ballot" will now help find detailed information about the candidates from the President and Vice President all the way down to Congressperson and County Commissioner in both English and Spanish.

Google already offers info on how to register and how to vote.

A search of "where to vote" in Google will display a polling place location finder as well as ID requirements.

Election day is November 8. 

Follow the steps below to see who's on your ballot.

  • Type "who's on my ballot" in the Google search box and hit enter.
  • Enter your address in the box that pops up and hit enter.
  • A list of all candidates that you will have the option to vote for will be listed.

    More voting information will be available if you need help on how to register, how to vote, and where you should go to vote.
