There's a lot for California voters to keep track of this election year.

Not only all the local races and statewide ballot measures, but also things like how to vote by mail and when you can vote.

If you're confused, fret not. Google wants to help.

Type in a query about voting (something like "how to vote") and you'll automatically see a pop up box with information tailored to the state you're clicking away in.
