We Are IssueVoter

IssueVoter is a nonpartisan, nonprofit online platform dedicated to giving everyone a voice in our democracy.

Our free public service makes civic engagement accessible, efficient, and impactful.

Make Democracy Work for You

It’s not easy to keep track of what’s happening in Congress. Researching legislation is time-consuming. Contacting your reps takes effort. And petitions only go so far.

We’re here to help. With IssueVoter, you can make your voice heard:
  • Get alerts on new legislation — before your reps vote
  • Understand new bills quickly and easily
  • Share your opinion directly with your reps
  • See how often your reps agree with you

Our Vision for Better, Sustainable Policymaking

Voter Participation

We help you learn about legislation affecting issues you care about so you can make an informed choice.

Transparency and Accountability

Our platform allows you to track your elected officials’ votes so you can hold them accountable.

Fair and Equitable Feedback

By opening lines of communication between you and your elected officials, we can reduce the influence of big money in politics.

Increased Knowledge, Empowered Action

We demystify the legislative process so you can take action and participate in our representative democracy.

Reduced Polarization

We always present both sides in the same place. We’ve heard, “Before IssueVoter, I didn’t even know there could be another side to this issue!”

Our Founder’s Story

Maria Yuan
Austin, Texas
Founder Maria Yuan first envisioned IssueVoter while managing a State Senate campaign in Iowa, a battleground state known for its voter engagement. Having previously worked for a Representative, she knew how little contact voters have with legislators year-round despite the fact that reps really do count every constituent contact. She thought, “How can we extend engagement beyond elections and keep elected officials accountable? How can we help everyone understand new laws that will affect their daily lives?” Maria founded IssueVoter to give everyone an effective, easy-to-use digital platform to voice their opinions and play an active role in the policymaking process.
