Love seeing votes daily. Able to record if you agree or not and sends feedback to the representative. Got response from their office! I'm trying to learn the UI. A star removed as I'm still having trouble navigating after couple weeks. Wish I could only remove a half star.
An ambitious app with a potentially excellent ability to link constituents with their legislators over individual votes, this is still too convoluted to use. There are too many "agree/disagree" statements that make it hard to understand how the legislator actually voted on a given bill. If they simplify the interface I will use it, but as it stands, I'm uninstalling. PLAIN LANGUAGE WORKS BEST. Even my government employee friends won't use it because it's too confusing.
It's missing votes I am absolutely sure my senator took and we're extremely important to me. S.J.Res.34 - A joint resolution providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the Federal Communications Commission relating to "Protecting the Privacy of Customers of Broadband and Other Telecommunications Services".
This app is exactly what we all need to keep up on local politicians and what laws they are supporting/not supporting. As well as who our local politicians even are! Keep informed America!
See votes, like or dislike, and send emails / phone calls to your reps. I have removed two stars because this app has started reporting the opposite of what I selected for polls and other interactions.
Civic engagement is hard. Votespotter makes it easy. I get notifications on all my Senators and Reps. This makes it really easy to tell which ones I generally agree with and which ones I generally disagree with. It also gives me all of my officials' contact information, making it super easy to call them about issues. Basically, this app lets me be a conscientious citizen while investing only a few minutes a week. Highly recommended for people who want more civil engagement but don't have much time to budget for it.
