Our goal at VoteSpotter is to connect you with your elected officials.
We want to make it easier than ever to bridge the gap between constituents and legislators. By describing legislation in simple terms, we allow you to see exactly how your legislators vote will influence you. With our app you can see how your legislators are voting and compare your vote to theirs. With just one click you can make yourself heard by sharing your opinions with your legislator.
How it Works:
VoteSpotter finds your local legislators by your home address, and begins alerting you to their recent votes.
We’ve made it easier than ever to compare your legislator’s votes with yours.
You’ll be able to tell instantaneously how your legislator voted and how much you differ with new graphs and side by side vote comparisons.
Learn more about your legislators via in app links to Ballotpedia.
Ratings and Reviews
I like the concept and use the app. As others have stated, the delay in reporting the vote is long. Also, even though I put my personal email address in the app, my congressman’s messages use my work email and I cannot figure out how/why. And sometimes there doesn’t seem to be a category that really fits the issue when giving feedback.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for using VoteSpotter! The app uses your phones mail app to send messages to your legislators, and you should be able to select which email address to send it from within that app. Please let us know if this problem persists. Thank you!
Taking over a month to post votes
Christopher Wray was confirmed as the new Director of the FBI on August 1. This vote showed up on VoteSpotter today, September 10, over a month later. This delay makes the app almost useless; I'm being generous with three stars.
November 9: I received a response: “ VoteSpotter is not a live feed of votes ...” I want a live feed. They wanted me to rate them “fives stars” (sic). I will be deleting this app.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback! VoteSpotter is not a live feed of votes as they happen, but carefully curated descriptions of what bills actually do. We are also actively working to provide the same content on upcoming votes, so stay tuned for updates in the coming months. We hope this rates us fives stars in your book!
Out of date information
Just signed up for this app and found that my state Senator is wrong. The one listed is in prison and the winner of the special election that was finalized a month ago is in place. If the information on this site is no more timely than this it cannot be very useful. I’ll give it a try but this is not very encouraging.
