For example, a Bing user can search "Kentucky Senate race" and the service will show Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) with an 83 percent chance of defeating Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes. The service will soon include an option for users to see a digital list of everything they can expect to see on their physical ballot come election day, according to Bing corporate vice president Derrick Connell. Citing a recent survey conducted for Bing, Connell notes that a majority of Americans say they are not informed about all the election issues, with half of those surveyed saying they do not feel confident casting their vote.
