Google Leads Voters Astray

If you used Google to tell you where to vote on Thursday, it may have given you bad advice.

Virginia Square resident Charlie Fitzpatick tells Fast Company magazine that a Google service intended to assist voters directed him to a location in Courthouse, almost a mile away from where he was supposed to be voting.

A text message service intended to provide polling place information also provided misinformation on election day, Fast Company reports.

Politico has the story, as well.
