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

What I learned
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.
