Civic Participation

is a JUST ELDERS way of life.

This often includes engaging their elected representatives.
They are known to members of congress and mayors, alderman, commissioners, and school board members.

Just Elders have accurate contact information for their members of congress and other elected officials.

Here are a couple of apps that allow you to exercise your civic responsibility using the power of your phone.

Countable makes it quick and easy to understand the laws Congress is considering. We also streamline the process of contacting your lawmaker, so you can tell them how you want them to vote on bills under consideration. You can use Countable to: Read clear and succinct summaries of upcoming and active legislation. Directly tell your lawmakers how to vote on those bills by clicking “Yea” or “Nay”. Follow up on how your elected officials voted on bills, so you can hold them accountable in the next election cycle.

Congress makes it easy to;  Find your representatives, see how they vote; See what bills are coming up for a vote next; Search for bills and votes you should know about; Stay on top of floor activity, committee hearings; and Be notified of just about everything
