Google searches for 'how to vote' up by more than 200% from 2012
With Election Day just around the corner voters can't seem to get enough of this year's presidential race.
Google Trends says searches for "how to vote" were 233% higher between Oct. 1 and Nov. 1 than they were during the same time period for the 2012 election.
The tech giant also says Americans are trying to find out where to vote; that search is primarily in the battleground states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Other social media platforms are also showing the election has made a huge impact. On YouTube, people have spent over 20 million hours watching presidential debate livestreams.
Facebook users spent more than 545 years, almost 4.8 million hours, between mid-July and mid-October, watching videos of the presidential candidates.
And since the beginning of the year until October 1st, over 109 million people in the U.S. generated 5.3 billion election-related likes, posts, comments, and shares on the platform.
That's the power of social media and an election that has seen so many twists and turns.
