Summary

Give *your* voice more power in our democracy! IssueVoter makes year-round civic engagement accessible, efficient, and impactful. Use @IssueVoter to get alerts about new bills, send your opinion to your rep before Congress votes, & track whether s/he represents you. We started by covering the U.S. House of Representatives, and are asking for your support to add the U.S. Senate. This also happens to be our most-requested feature!

Challenge

Over 10,000 bills are introduced for each session of Congress. 1,000 of them are voted on each session. That 3 new laws a day! How many of those bills have you heard about? 1? 5? You missed 995 bills! There are 3 reasons for this: 1. It's hard to keep track that many bills 2. Bills can be difficult to research & understand 3. Contacting reps still involves snail mail, phone calls, or filling out long forms online.

Solution

That's where IssueVoter comes in. It's politics made simple. Here's How it Works: (1) Stay Informed Year-Round: Receive targeted alerts before Congress votes on issues you care about - IssueVoter summarizes bills, and offers pros, cons, and related news for context. (2) Make Your Voice Count: Send your opinion directly to your rep - in just one click. (3) Keep Politicians Accountable: Track your rep's votes and bill outcomes - helping you make an informed decision at election time.

Long-Term Impact

Now imagine a future where all 200 million registered voters used IssueVoter. Within just a few elections, our representatives could more accurately reflect the citizens of the United States than ever before in the history of our country. Representation should not be a privilege - it is our democratic right. With your support IssueVoter will drive a new political revolution!
