Register to Vote Layer - and other stuff - in Google Earth
[UPDATE 22-October: This layer has been replaced by the new 2006 US Election Guide Layer]
[UPDATE 10-October 1515 ET: there were other updates as well - see below. Also, see comments from Google's GE CTO Michael Jones on the new Vote layer.]
Well, I opened up Google Earth this morning and there was a new layer turned on: "Register to Vote". Placemarks for each state in the US have a link to registering to vote for that state and a reminder of the deadline for the November 7th elections. Now Google is helping out the political system out. If you've already registered, or are not interested in voting, then you simply turn off the "Register to Vote" layer in the Layers pane on the lower left. I'm curious whether only people with IP addresses in the US see this layer, or if everyone in the world sees it? According to non-US GEB commenters below, it does appear in other countries. I think Google should not do this as a layer unless they can constrain it to those people who it matters to. For now, they should default it to turned off.
Got a tip on some more updates: The Google Earth Community Layer updated to October 1st. This means all placemarks posted to the correct forums now appear in the layers. It appears Google is getting better about doing this more regularly. The featured content layer was updated for corrections. Also, the Digital Globe layers, which shows you the available images and dates from DG's library, has been updated through September.
