Google Offers Embedable Voter Location Tool

I was pretty frustrated last week when Esri offered an embedable map of the aftermath of Sandy to the press. I had to contact the company to learn how to embed it (via an iframe, more than I as a journalist want to know!).

Today I read on Google+ (thanks Rob Cheetham) that Google is offering an embeddable map to find voting locatoins for anyone to put on webpages. The doc explains the two lines of code required to embed the map, then goes on about how to customize it. I copied and pasted the code below. I could go further, but I think I've made my point. If you want journalists (or anyone) to embed your map/tool, tell us exactly how!
