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.
Good but missing some key features
This app is good for what it covers but frequently passes on major issues. Food labeling is a perfect example. Also, the poll questions are frequently worded in such a way as to bias the responses. It makes me wonder if this app is sponsored by one political group & they are only using the results that advance their agenda? They don't have a 'search' feature so that you can see how your representative voted on a particular issue unless they think it's important. Again, all of this information is in the public records. The same script that pulls the data for one vote could be used for all votes. It's just text data so server space shouldn't be an issue.
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.
Easy to use and give feedback to our elected officials!
This is a great independant platform (one of the few out there) that I've found where I can find non partisan news and an app! Great to see that I can use this to better understand what our officials are doing and to give them direct feedback - last time I checked they all still worked for us - the citizens!
