After launching “how to register” voter registration tools last month, Google has now added a new state-by-state “how to vote” guide to its arsenal of voting tools.

In anticipation of the November elections, Google searches for “how to vote” now surfaces a “2016 Election: How to Vote” box with “How to,” “Requirements” and “When to vote” tabs that list information like voter ID requirements, deadlines, mail-in ballots and early voting procedures.

In addition to the state-by-state voting guide, Google also shared search trends from the last four years, showing how “voter registration” searches have changed since the last election in 2012.

“In fact, compared to the same time four years ago, nationwide searches for voter registration are up 190 percent nationwide,” writes product manager Emily Moxley on Google’s Inside Search blog.
