As progress to phase 5 of voting for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Google's continuing to try and do its part in reminding people to vote. The doodle doesn't feature anything we haven't seen before and aims to address general queries that any voter might have in mind before one sets out to the nearest polling booth.
These general FAQs include — when to vote, where to vote, how to vote, how to get your name on the voters' list, and all other such similar question.
When you click on the doodle, it leads you to a quick guide on 'How to vote' during these Indian general elections, 2019. It has information on the voting process at the polling booth, details of voter helpline in case a citizen finds that their name is not on the voting list, finding out where to vote, and the dates for the voting days for different regions.
Do note, you can only vote if your name appears in the Voter List aka Electoral Roll.
