Objectivity & Accountability I've been looking for a quick way to get a summary of what is going on legislatively at the state and federal level. This app not only does that, but allows me to contact the office my representatives in a simple and easy way. Excellent for anyone seeking to be more civically engaged and hold officials accountable in an informed way.
Great app!!! Some fine tuning needed. First off, someone said it won't show how Democrats vote. FALSE!!! All my local reps are Democrats and my US Senators are Republicans. I can see both just fine. Secondly, while I agree understanding whether or not you agree with your reps vote is confusing, it's necessary to phrase it that way so they can show you a number that shows how much you agree or disagree with your rep. Finally, it destroys the oversimplification of the party system and makes you rethink the PERSON who represents you.
Great idea but confusing to use It requires lots of mental gyrations... My senator voted no on a bill to prevent local governments from banning guns... so if I support gun control, does that mean I agree or disagree?! At least ask me if I support the bill, not my senators opinion!
I would like to see the historical voting record of my representatives over their time in office. Also, a database of all state and national office holders voting records. I'm sure that information already exists somewhere, but I work for a living and time is one commodity I am always short on. Thanks for your efforts!
Great Public Service This easy to use app is a tremendous resource for the public to easily follow votes of their elected representatives. I've downloaded several competitors' applications and I have found this is my one stop shop. It does restrict vote following to your constituency area, meaning you can't presently search for votes of congressmen outside your district or Senators outside your state. It would very nice to have this option while restricting your ability to agree or disagree with these lawmakers.
Great idea, needs work. We need this to be clear on the agree disagree options. Is it in regards to the way they voted or in regards to the legislation it is describing?
