U.S. 2014 Elections: Google & Bing Both Deliver Quick Answers For Election Results With An Interactive Map
Election related queries show results for Senate, House and Governor races.
As promised, Google and Bing are both offering quick answers for election-related queries.
Searching “election results” on Google provides a quick answer box with a color-coded map of the U.S. to show which states went red and which went blue. Users have the option to click on House, Senate and Governor election results, as well as individual states to see how different districts voted.
Google’s quick answer box can also be expanded to display which candidates triumphed in the tight races for House, Senate and Governor elections.
Bing offers the same information and interactive map as Google, but doesn’t feature results for any of the tight races. (It does, however, offer up “Election Trivia” for anyone wanting to kill time.)
Both Google and Bing’s election information is sourced from the Associated Press.
Thanks to reader Samuel Edwards for the reminder on today’s “election results” search query.
