For those of you who don’t live in the US, you may have heard we are in an election year. For those of you who live in the US, it has been one of the most hotly contested pre-election cycles in quite some time. For those of you who use the Google Now launcher, primary and caucus results have been readily available for the past few weeks as these events leading up to the Democratic and Republican conventions this summer and the Presidential election in November. Part of that process to get the nomination of either party is to secure enough delegates from the states (thanks to your results in the primaries or caucus’ in those states) to get the nomination. With “Super Tuesday” now complete and the delegates picture more clear, Google Now is starting to show the delegates standings.
If you swipe over to Google Now on your Android phone or tablet, you will now see the breakdown of delegates for each candidate in each party. The information card also gives you the total number of delegates requires for a candidate to win their party’s nomination. Google has committed to continue to provide election information throughout 2016 and so far they are keeping that commitment.
In order to see this information, you will have to be using Google Now as your launcher on your Android device. If you don’t want to see the information you can dismiss the cards.
