Comcast NBCUniversal Launches Comprehensive Bilingual Voter Information Initiatives
As the 2022 midterm election approaches, Comcast NBCUniversal is making it even easier to stay connected to election news, voting information, and analysis across platforms.
We’re excited to bring back the Election Central destination on Comcast’s entertainment platforms, including Xfinity X1, Xfinity Flex, and XClass TV, to connect our customers, viewers, and employees to important election news and actionable information to effectively “Plan Your Vote.”
Since the 2012 election, Election Central has been the go-to place for Xfinity customers every two years to get the latest on national elections.
By saying “Election Central” or “Noticias de las Elecciones” into their device’s voice remote, customers can check out the most recent news clips, navigate to their favorite news channels – across broadcast, cable, and streaming – and even get more information in English and Spanish on how to vote in their state.
New for 2022, customers across X1, Flex, and XClass TV can say “Plan Your Vote” or “Planifica Tu Voto” into their voice remote to launch a QR code that connects them to NBC News’ Plan Your Vote interactive tool.
Plan Your Vote, which was introduced ahead of the 2020 Presidential election and also inspired Comcast NBCUniversal’s Plan Your Vaccine/Planifica Tu Vacuna initiative, has returned for the 2022 midterm election.
Plan Your Vote/Planifica Tu Voto provides a comprehensive, state-by-state guide of information voters need to know about the voting rules where they live and major changes since the 2020 election, including registration deadlines, mail-in voting, early in-person voting, and more. The tool is powered by NBC News and sources voting information directly from state websites across the country.
Additionally, in collaboration with Telemundo, the tool is available in both English and Spanish, with the ability to easily toggle between the two languages. Plan Your Vote/Planifica Tu Voto is available at both NBCNews.com/PlanYourVote and PlanificaTuVoto.com.
