Googling in the voting booth

A smartphone means never having to plan in advance.

Don’t know the restaurant’s address? It’ll be in Google maps. Not sure when that meeting is scheduled for? You can check the calendar later. If it’s not there, you’ll find it somewhere in your email.

So here’s my Election Day prediction: A net increase of at least five minutes waiting time per 100 people passing through a voting booth as someone researches county sheriff candidates or a local ballot initiative at the very, very last minute.
