Story

In today's hyper political Twitter era, it is easy to lose sight of what matters: legislation. Influencing local policy is an overlooked way to promote immediate change and shape the future. Those interested in affecting change are often deterred from local politics due to its complexity and lack of useful information.

What it does

Legicom hopes to empower citizens to learn about policies in their state and influence policy directly from their device. Legicom accesses and displays local legislation information to create a positive user experience. Users can then tell representatives how they feel with simple interactions

How I built it

  • Access and display information from LegiScan API

Challenges I ran into

  • Time constraints
  • Prioritization of project components

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

  • Developed clean UI
  • Proved Concept

What I learned

  • Work.

What's next for Legicom

The project can easily be expanded to provide more information such as timelines, roll calls, and general information about the legislative process. More user interaction can be implemented to create a more immersive experience.
