Google has launched a dedicated site for elections google.com/elections just in time for the Iowa Caucuses. The site is “an election hub where citizens can study, watch, discuss, learn about, participate in and perhaps even make an impact on the digital campaign trail as it blazes forward,” says Eric Hysen, Google Politics & Elections Team.

The site enables users to sort through election info by popularity, race or issues.  People can also check out the Trends Dashboard to take the Web’s real-time political pulse by comparing candidates’ YouTube video views, search traffic and Google News mentions.
