Aside

The manifestos are out and
party leaders are busy
touring the country. Even
tech companies are doing
what they can to help you
choose a side ahead of next
month’s General Election.
Twitter rolled out its political
emoji, lovingly referred to as
“hashflags”, earlier this
month, but Google’s just
launched a valuable resource
that tells you all of the
election candidates in your
area. If you pull up a Google
search and enter the words
“who is on the uk ballot,” the
search giant will ask you to
enter your postcode or
constituency before
displaying an alphabetic list
of all the candidates gunning
for your vote. As expected,
the 2015 Election campaign
has been the most web-
friendly yet — it’s just a
shame online voting won’t
happen any time soon.
