Google has created a special doodle on its Kenya homepage google.co.ke to mark Kenya's historic elections.
The doodle is displayed on the day Kenyans go to the polls for the first time under a new constitution, to elect the president, senators, governors, MPs, Civic Wards and Women representatives.
Google, the global technology giant, has helped promote access to relevant information in the period before the election through the elections hub, the YouTube channel, Shabikika Amani na Kura Yako (Sports4peace campaign) and supporting student developers to create tools for engagement with elections-related information.
A Google "doodle" is a decoration of the Google logo. Over the years, doodles have become one of the most beloved parts of Google.
The doodles have been produced to celebrate international holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of noted artists and scientists.Some popular doodles include Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Ray Charles, and Earth Day, among others. The Kenya special doodle will be on the page from 6am to 6pm.
