New Web Site Aggregates Voting Records for Congressional Reps Since 2009

A new Web site lets you check the voting records for US Congress representatives since 2009 and hopefully fact-check claims made in races for Congressional seats. “The iCheck database contains votes for every member of the House and Senate since 2009, spanning more than 2.5 million votes and tens of thousands of bills. The site integrates data from multiple sources, including GovTrack.us and a legislative tracking service called Congressional Quarterly. Visitors to the iCheck site can look up a specific senator or representative from their state and see how often their legislator voted with the president’s position or the majority votes for each party, as well as how those alignments compare with other members of Congress.”
