A new app that I have found during the excitement around the Midterm Elections is called “Countable-Contact Congress.” This app easily allows one to be a more informed citizen. It gives you the ability to be informed about upcoming voting, non-partisan summaries about news and legislation, and unbiased arguments for both parties. It also lets you see who your representatives are in your area, and see how your votes align with those lawmakers. In addition, you can register to vote, call your representatives, and send video messages to your representatives and to the president.

This app is a beneficial way to interact with politicians, and to be knowledgable about everything going on in politics. Technology is allowing the American democracy to be a society of well-informed individuals.
