In response, the Google Election Center is looking at election search trends through real-time analysis of millions of nationwide searches. On 9NEWS 5 a.m. we spoke with Abbi Tatton from Google's Elections Team.
She noted that online searches spiked after last night's speech by Ann Romney, as well as searches about the five Romney sons after she talked about the challenges of raising them.
Tatton noted searches are also up about Romney running mate Paul Ryan in advance of his speech Wednesday night, including searches of Ryan shirtless, and information about his well-known dedication to fitness.
"It will be interesting to see as he takes the podium whether the country is looking more for the issues that he stands for or his biography, including what he looks like without his shirt on," Tatton explained.
Tatton said Google involvement includes the Google Politics and Elections site, YouTube videos and live feeds, and Google+ social networking content on the entire convention and election process.
Google's Live Election Hub will include live Presidential debates, including the first one that will be held in Denver on the D.U. Campus on October 3, as well as election night itself, which will be covered by Google in real time. The hub interface works from your desktop computer in a web browser or from your mobile device.
Google also has an Online Voter Guide for you to peruse. There's a specific place for anyone voting in special situations like military or overseas, including rules and deadlines.
