Microsoft has been enhancing Windows 10 search by adding more and more information and by also tweaking its UI in recent times. It has now started to feature US Election related information in Windows Search as can be seen in the screenshot above.
The message can be easily dismissed and is surprisingly available in India too in the Windows search. Perhaps Microsoft forgot to tune this server-side message to be not available outside the US.
If you click on the link provided in the message it takes you to the Bing search Voting registration page. Here you can check your preparedness for voting in the US Elections.
Steps for Voter Registration
- Please ensure that you are 18+ years old and ordinarily a resident of the part/polling area of the constituency where you want to be enrolled.
- Visit electoralsearch.in to check if you are already registered. If your name appears in the list, you are eligible to vote.
- Visit nvsp.in to register online and track your application status. Copies of necessary documents should also be uploaded.
- You can also register offline. Two copies of Form 6, accompanied by copies of the relevant documents, can be filed in person before the concerned Electoral Registration Officer / Assistant Electoral Registration Officer or sent by post addressed to them, or can be handed over to the Booth Level Officer of your polling area.
