iCitizen is a free, nonpartisan civic-engagement platform that offers a unique way for you to reconnect to politics and government. Called “nothing short of extraordinary” by POLITICO, our app delivers a cutting-edge system of digital democracy.
Interested in women’s rights, civil rights, voting rights? Who won the latest election? Who are your elected officials and how do their votes reflect your opinions? iCitizen allows users to get informed quickly on the issues they care about, join like-minded citizens and influence their elected representatives—all from the palm of their hand.
Our goal is citizen engagement – giving U.S. citizens the opportunity to build their own “political DNA,” access important and constantly updated information on relevant news and legislation, and vote in polls related to today's political issues. From the president to your local state representatives, it has never been easier to track what your federal and state legislators are doing and how their actions matter to you. Once you know, tell them what you think about it! Not only does iCitizen deliver user opinions on polls and legislation directly to your officials, but it gives you every available contact for every representative nationwide.
“Regardless of your party affiliation, iCitizen provides comprehensive and fact-based political news and information you can trust,” says Duncan Dashiff, chairman of iCitizen. “It’s an election app and a ‘between elections’ app – so you can help your federal and state representatives steer the direction of our politics and our democracy.”

What's New in Version 1.5.1
Fixed a small problem which would prompt an alert asking users to update to the latest version even if they are actually using the latest version of the iCitizen app.
I have recommendations
This app. is good. However, it could be better. I would say making it voter friendly. Every election asks us to vote in many things that we, most likely, don't know about. Mayors, propositions, judges, school districts, etc. This app. would be ideal if we had access to information about all candidates in our areas and national, information about all issues such as propositions (with a search bar for ease of use), and more detailed information about "my reps". This would help a lot of citizens become more involved in politics, especially voting with more knowledge about their decisions.
Keeps you up to date with politics and important news. That's awesome for people like me who can't be bothered to look at actual news programs
Update: Still dope. No longer asks to update even when there are no updates available. App is even better now
Keeping me up-to-date with news and legislation
I'm really liking this app. Keeps me up to date with news and legislation on the issues I follow. And allows me to easily share information on social media. I give iCitizen an A+
