Leaked Google Email Reveals Effort to Boost Latino Vote

A leaked email written by Google’s former head of multicultural marketing details a range of the company’s efforts to increase Latino turnout, including the support of a partner organization that helped drive voters to the polls in the run-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election. “We worked very hard. Many people did. We pushed to get out the Latino vote with our features, our partners, and our voices. We kept our Google efforts non-partisan and followed our company’s protocols for the elections strategy” the email begins. “We emphasized our mission to give Latinos access to information so they can make an informed decision at the polls, and we feel very grateful for all the support to do this important work.” The short version of this story is that Google acted as an official Get Out The Vote (GOTV) arm of the DNC on behalf of Hillary’s campaign. But, is anyone surprised?
