IssueVoter makes information accessible and actionable with customized alerts before the United States Congress votes, and translates hundreds of bills every year into layman’s terms with points from both sides. IssueVoter is the only nonpartisan platform that provides a personalized representative scorecard, helping individuals hold elected officials accountable and become more informed voters in the next election. Policy creates large-scale, systemic change. However, America’s representative democracy remains inaccessible to most. Over 15,000 bills are introduced each Congressional session, yet the public only hears about a few. By informing you of legislation affecting issues you care about, and sending your opinions to lawmakers, IssueVoter helps you see how often you were truly represented.
IssueVoter now has individuals in all 435 Congressional Districts who send opinions to their Members of Congress regularly. In addition to being a free public service that anyone can use, IssueVoter partners with colleges and universities to provide a customized experience and additional content for students. IssueVoter also has a free lesson plan geared towards middle and high school grade students.
