LLRX.com Editors' Featured Site for January 2, 2001:
By simply entering your zip code, this site provides information on your elected representatives President (no kidding), Congress, Governors and State Legislators. The information includes a very nice color photo (amazing how young they all look), member background data, e-mail address, a chart of their key votes (including a summary of the bill, a member tally organized by Yea and Nay votes, and additional links to bios of those who voted in each category), and data about key staff. Easy navigation is achieved through clearly identified graphics as well as drop-down menu choices. Very useful and quick.
