The most efficient way for organizations to distribute legislator, bill, and vote information on their website.
A legislative scorecard, is any ranked balanced scorecard used primarily by advocacy groups to rank legislators or candidates for legislative office by their voting record. It can also be used to refer to ranked indexes of introduced or ratified legislation on criteria determined by the advocacy group. Scores are often shown as a percentage, total points, or letter grades and help the public easily understand how legislators are voting.
Creating a scorecard is often time consuming to launch and tedious to maintain. The large number of bills introduced each session, sorting through which ones actually matter, the constant wording changes, tracking how each legislator is voting, tracking when legislators are absent, creating a scoring formula that the public will understand, calculating and re-calculating legislator scores to make sure they’re correct - the headache!
As software developers by profession, inefficiencies make us crazy. So we created the Legislative Scorecard as the most efficient way for organizations to get legislator, bill, and voting information to the general public in a user-friendly and mobile format. We sync new bills, bill changes, legislator contact information, legislator votes, and more into our scorecards 2x per day. We’re proud to say our service is used by non-profit organizations, advocacy groups, and even former representatives.
