Happy Election Year! Does your Representative (or Senator) represent YOU?
Introducing CONGRESS MATCH from POPVOXhttp://www.popvox.com/blog/2012/announcing-popvox-congress-match-does-your-represe/
All of the positions you take on POPVOX are now matched up in a grid showing you how your legislator voted vs. how you wanted him/her to vote.
As you weigh in on more bills and Congress takes more votes, Congress Match will update to help you see just how “representative” your Representative or Senators are. That means that in 2012, you have even more reasons to tell your legislators what you think about pending legislation -- and a way to see how well they listened when Election Day rolls around.
This is the brainchild of +Annalee Flower Horne
developer, who began the project with her friend MacKenzie Morgan at the DC International Open Data Hackathon Day, using POPVOX and GovTrack APIs. +William Donnell
and +Shane Aday made it beautiful AND functional, and +Joshua Tauberer
conducted the symphony. GREAT job, Team POPVOX!
