With the newly-released “My Elected Officials” app, iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users have a non-partisan tool that gives you the power to participate and engage in your government like never before.
Users get unlimited access to congressional voting records, contact information, push notifications via the ‘follow’ option, video links and breaking news via digital outlets of media resources such as GovTrack, FOX News, CNN and C-SPAN. The “My Elected Officials” tab gives you quick access only to the elected officials you choose to follow.
Users can personalize the app for their use, following only the elected officials who represent them in Congress, and thus creating an interactive environment for which they can share information with family and friends via SMS text messages, e-mail, Facebook and Twitter.
Users have unlimited access to all members in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. Within this tab, users will find contact information, learn about voting records, committee membership, bill sponsorship and support, view videos, locate maps to Washington D.C. offices and links to social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Additionally, users have access to breaking news via the news link.
