Keep track of how your legislators are voting

Concerned about what's going to be happening in the US government in the coming days, weeks, months, and years? Want to keep tabs on how your Representative or Senator is voting?

  1. Go to govtrack.us
  2. Plug in your address
  3. When your Representative's and Senators' names pop up, click on them
  4. Click the button that says "Get alerts"
  5. A box like this one will pop up:

You can sign up for email updates if you want, or if you're like me and hate email, you can right-click the RSS feed link and paste it into your favorite RSS reader (mine is NewsBlur):

It's going to be critical for the next few years to keep track of what the US government is doing. This makes it just a bit easier.
