  1. Sort by which bills are going to be voted on next

    I would like to see which bills are just about to be voted on, and which have just been voted on.

      This is a good idea! What do other people think? How would you all like to see bills sorted?

    • Offer a confirmation message after one votes yea or nay before the vote is counted or sent to legislator.

      For example "Are you sure this is how you want to vote? Have you reviewed the bill thoroughly?"
      I've made the mistake a few times where I accidentally vote the wrong way after further review. Would be a good safeguard.

        Smart. Yes, that’s an interesting idea. Thanks for submitting it.

        I’d love to hear what others in the community think about it.

      • I was notified of a vote

        I got an email that my congressman had voted on a bill, but nowhere could I find HOW he voted on that bill (including going to the website via the link on the email). I thought that was the purpose of countable. I am new to countable and may not know enough. Please advise.

          • Improve bill headline questions

            Improve how you pose the questions that headline a bill. For example with bill H.R. 442 the question made it seem like it was specific to LGBT community when the bill was in fact about removing the interstate commerce requirement from hate crime law. So the bill should have the question "Should effecting interstate commerce no longer be a requirement to have an act qualify as a hate crime?" But thats just an example - to show how the questions. The one thing eveyone will see and dometimes the only thing they will read - need improvement.

                        • Get a proof reader who understands the rules re: double negatives

                          On the poll re: using tax money to pay for portraits of officials .Your presentation of the question would be misleading for many voters who incorrectly use double negatives in their everyday speech with no comprehension problems . But when voting the question should be in the simplest terms possible. Double negatives are usually an innocent or a deliberate attempt to deceive or confuse the reader .What is your intent ?

                                    I'm in love with Countable. The articles and content are fabulous. However, it gets too mixed in with the bills that I get to vote on. My suggestion - make the bills front and center. As is, I have to dig around to find them.

                                      • Compare competing/similar bills

                                        Make it easier to connect/compare multiple proposed bills on the same topic so I can view differing details & consider the full picture on the issue to form my opinion.

                                        • HR303

                                          My suggestion/recommendation/idea for HR303 Veterans Disabilty Restoration Act is to pass it. I served our country for 20 years in combat and peacetime. I was injured during the Gulf War and many other times. I am now 100% disabled as my doctors stated I am not employable. I receive my VA disability and Combat Related Special Compensation. I had to give up my retirement pay to receive CRSC which is a disability from the military. Granted, I don't pay taxes on it, but I am paying my own disability. This is an injustice that only Veterans are affected as well…
