What is Countable?
Tell your Senators and Representative what you think about how they’re doing – not every six or two years – but every day!
Countable is a platform that makes government easy, empowering voters with the knowledge and tools necessary to directly influence policy and keep track of their congressional representatives. Countable provides users with an overview of key legislation on important issues, as well as giving voters an easy way to tell their representatives how to vote. Countable provides tools to see how those representatives vote and keep them accountable.
How Countable works?
Countable covers US federal legislation with state and local legislation in the works. Here you can find every bill that matters with a succinct write up. If it’s coming up for a vote, in the news, or controversial – it will be on Countable. This includes: Senate and House Bills, Senate and House simple resolutions, Conference Resolutions, and Joint resolutions.
The Countable editorial team creates objective summaries for each piece of legislation sourcing pertinent resources and providing a pro and con argument. Sources include the Congressional Budget Office, Congressional Research Service, the majority and minority committees handling the legislation, the Executive Branch, and notable news and research about the legislation. We encourage feedback – please go to http://www.countable.us to provide feedback.
--- Hate politics? We do too! Take the politics out of it! Countable is here to bring good and responsive government to the land – to you! ---
Countable is about the issues, not about the parties. Regardless of where you stand, Countable makes your voice heard on Capitol Hill.
Countable brings you the most relevant bills straight from the Congressional schedule, on topics like education, abortion, military spending, the economy, taxes, immigration, healthcare, and the environment. Whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative, Countable lets you make your voice heard on issues and causes that matter.
We give you the tools to stay informed for the November 2014 election so you can ignore partisan lobbyists. Decide for yourself who has earned your vote. Take our fun Congressional Compatibility Quiz to see whether your representative has actually been looking out for your interests in Washington.
Countable was created by a team of dedicated Americans based in San Francisco and Washington DC. We have a deep understanding of the capability of technology and believe that used properly we can make American democracy work in a fashion similar to what our founders envisioned. Our advisory team includes Joe Trippi who ran Howard Dean’s revolutionary Presidential campaign in 2004 and George Gorton, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first hire when he ran for Governor of California.
