If you are trying to keep track of how our Congressional delegation is voting, or just want to look into their record in general, here are some sites that might be helpful.
Fivethirtyeight.com is tracking whether U.S. Representatives and Senators are voting with the President’s agenda. It provides links to the official Congress.gov page documenting each bill, so you can look beyond just the title.
Propublica has a profile of every sitting member of Congress. It includes voting records and the outcome of the votes.
ProPublica is an independent, nonprofit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest. Our work focuses exclusively on truly important stories, stories with “moral force.” We do this by producing journalism that shines a light on exploitation of the weak by the strong and on the failures of those with power to vindicate the trust placed in them.
GovTrack.us is a tool to find out about how your U.S. Congresspeople are voting.
GovTrack.us is a completely independent entity which is wholly owned by its operator and receives no funding in any form from outside organizations. We have no financers, sponsors, investors, or partners, nor do we have any affiliation or relationship (financial or otherwise) with any political party, government agency, or any other outside group or persons. We pay our operating costs through our advertising revenue (our policy) and crowdfunding.
Countable.us tries to make it easier to understand the subject of major bills and to connect constituents to their Legislators.
Countable makes it quick and easy to understand the laws Congress is considering. We also streamline the process of contacting your lawmaker, so you can tell them how you want them to vote on bills under consideration.
You can use Countable to:
* Read clear and succinct summaries of upcoming and active legislation.
* Directly tell your lawmakers how to vote on those bills by clicking “Yea” or “Nay”.
* Follow up on how your elected officials voted on bills, so you can hold them accountable in the next election cycle.
