The site also allows one to track how representatives vote in congress, updates gives current important issues facing the United States and allows one to directly contact representatives via e-mail. In addition, voters have the option to have their letter delivered by hand to Capital Hill.

Dnet allows you to compare the presidential candidates views on issues side-by-side such as the economy, the environment and gay and lesbian rights. Congressional leaders have taken notice to the site, “In DemocracyNet the LWV has created an exceptional resource for voters and candidates alike. The opportunity to choose the issues I wanted to make statements on and the generous space available for each statement, allowed me to engage my opponents on the issues. DemocracyNet cuts through the noise and brings voters the information they need,” Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton said. has a Media Guide, which lists every newspaper, television news station and radio station in every state. This allows voters to contact these organizations through e-mail, fax or telephone.

Individuals who have not registered to vote also have the option of finding how to go about registering. The registration form can be filled out online and sent to your registrar of voters office.

“MegaVote” sends voters an update via e-mail of what their representatives voted on in Congress in the past week.
