Users of Google Earth can view the results of the first round of the French Presidential elections online. Not one to miss out on a great promotional opportunity, Google provided a small file that could be downloaded, which adds the ability to view the local electoral results by district, and even by candidate.
Additionally, users can also cross-reference the electoral programs of the candidates, view relevant Google News publications, related images and even the videos distributed via Google Video.
In order to see whether all this information will have enabled French voters to make a good decision for the second round, the service will be up on May 7 in the same format and with the same functionality. As of June, a guide of the legislative elections will allow the users to view the results for the candidates in each district.
