Track Government Officials Using These 2 Websites

Posted on Thu, Jun 12, 2014 @ 10:06 AM

Like most everyone in America, the government relies more and more on the Internet to communicate. Thanks to Legistalker and Govtrack, listening in on what your elected officials say and finding out how they’ve been voting has never been easier.

legistalkerLegistalker is an ever-growing database that combs social media, government websites, and thousands of Internet news sources for updates.

New information is available every 20 minutes, so keeping an eye on the officials you voted for is only a click away. 

If you're tracking multiple people, say all the Senators and Representatives from your state, you can add them to your Watch List; from there you'll be able to monitor updates from all the people on your Watch List in one location.

government trackGovTrack
 gives users access to the status of U.S. federal legislation, voting records, and congressional district maps. Most of the information is assembled in an automated way by scanning federal government websites. Unlike Legistalker, GovTrack gives you the option of receiving updated via email and RSS feeds.
