Google Politics: “Register to Vote”

This from Google Politics today on the Twitters:

Here are some additional data from Google Trends for you to chew on.  Thoughts on the relevance or irrelevance of these data are welcome.

The chart below reports the search volume for “register to vote” over the past 12 months.

And here we see the search volume for “register to vote” over the past 30 days.  There is a clear spike during the RNC.  However, that spike appears to be dwarfed by the spike during the DNC.

Finally, the chart below reports the states from which “register to vote” was most searched over the past 30 days.

    I live in Utah and have voted in every election since I was a youngster. This year I received a post card from the county clerk telling me I was “unaffiliated”. I had to re-register using the online process. It was curious that I had to do so considering the county clerk is our neighbor and should know we vote every time. Of course we do tend to vote for candidates not in the majority party of Utah…
