Civic Technologies We Love for Engaging Your Elected Official

POPVOX

POPVOX – Your Voice. Verified. Quantified. Amplified.

Check out our partner at PopVoxNation and be a part of an innovative organization that verifies and quantifies constituent opinions on legislation for members of Congress.

How to get started?

Visit the Bills page to find bills in the news and those trending on POPVOX.

Or, find a bill endorsed by an organization: Search their Advocacy Directory for an organization that you support to find their Legislative Agenda.

Advanced: Find a bill via their bill search using keywords. But you may need to do some research to find out what each bill is about before commenting on it.

ASK THEM

AskThem’s motta is “Where people like you ask questions & get answers from politicians, celebrities, and any verified Twitter account.” AskThem is a project of the Participatory Politics Foundation and is free, open-source, non-profit, and non-partisan, with open data for civic engagement.

How does it work?

First, find your elected officials and ask them a question. Then, get your family, friends, and neighbors to support it. Finally, see the elected official’s answer publicly displayed.  Sign up here.
