India: Taking its news aggregation service to the next level for the Lok Sabha elections in India, Google has now launched a new tool called 'Know Your Candidates'.

Google's election portal now has Know Your Candidate sub-page that lets you search details of the candidate according to pincodes

Mapped onto the Google Maps interface, visitors to the portal can find information about candidates by using pincodes of their respective areas or by zooming into their locality on the map. This tool integrates publicly available information sourced from Indian organisations such as the Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR), PRS Legislative Research and Liberty Institute India. The site also includes features such as elections related news videos, search trends, Google+ Hangout series, and an interactive pledge to vote campaign.
