Google Search will no longer show autocomplete suggestions for elections


Google has announced to block autocomplete suggestions -- that could be viewed as being for or against a particular candidate or party -- in its Search platform ahead of the US presidential election in November. Autocomplete suggests possible terms based on what a user starts typing in Google Search.


Google said in a blog post that it will also remove predictions that could be interpreted as a claim about participation in the election -- like statements about voting methods, requirements, or the status of voting locations -- or the integrity or legitimacy of electoral processes, such as the security of the election.
