How Did Your State Legislators Vote? Let’s Find Out!

We can only hold our legislators accountable if we know what they’re doing. Even if you don’t have time to send them a message, it is still valuable to know how your legislators voted on issues that you care about so we’re trying to make that as easy as possible.

If you do want to contact your legislator after seeing how they voted, go for it! Even a quick thank you message would certainly brighten their day. It also helps keep our spirits up if we’re not always sending angrygrams. If you disagree with their vote, you can also give them that feedback if you want.
