Upon founding VoteRockIt, I had spent my adult life in politics--both professionally and through volunteer work. When my co-founder Matt, and I linked up, we were determined to bridge the gap of critical information between the electorate and those running for office or in office...and vice versa.
So, for the next 30 days, I'm going to focus on the the value add VoteRockIt would provide for the electorate--for the American public. What are our elected officials doing? We know AFTER the votes, we can see a list after the fact, but getting pertinent information to voice our opinion on bills before votes are cast is hard to come by...and it shouldn't be.
I'm going to go coast to coast, finding out how to get this information right now, if it is accessible at all, how long it takes, and then letting you know one way to voice your opinion if you are in that city.
Although VoteRockIt supports candidates and elected officials ranging from city counsel to Presidents, for the sake of continuity, I will focus on members of Congress.
I will start with San Diego. Let me know if you want me to use your city along the way.
