      Great idea. We’d love to have the Senator on the platform. It would be great if you could let her team know about us!

      More than once after clicking yea or nay I decide I would rather not choose either. I would like to be able to return to the default.

          Great idea! Countable is in the process of rolling out support for state and local legislation in the coming months.

          Please suggest which cities and states we should add first.

          Thanks.

          • should be able to "find friends"

            I would love to be able to find other friends on here easily via Facebook etc.. right now it seems the only way to do it is email someone.

            • Countable for our Representatives

              Is there an easy way for a representative to see how members of his or her district have voted on a bill? If not, I think this ties in with seeing how other users of Countable have voted.

                Not yet – we’ll be adding metrics like that to Countable soon. Thanks for the recommendation!

              • Include state and local govermnent

                Support state (and possibly expand to local) government bills. A way to send feedback like this to my state reps would be incredibly valuable, since state government doesn't get the focus national does, but has just as much if not more impact on us.

                    You guys are featuring legislation that has already been voted on.

                    Would it be possible create some sort of count down clock to let us know what legislation is about to be voted on?

                      Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

                      In general, you should only see bills that are active featured on the Home / Trending screen.

                      Bills that have an upcoming vote should be labeled as such (“upcoming”).

                      A countdown clock is a great idea, but a bit troublesome as Congress doesn’t post a detailed schedule.

                      We’ll keep working on it though!

                    • Change name in App / Website

                      The first and last name. If for example I changed my name, I should have the ability to change my name here as well.

                        Yes, that one is pretty obvious. We’ll add it to the queue.

                            Great idea.

                            You can see bills that have upcoming votes on the site today and we’re working on implementing new views where you can view by status.

                            We’ll update this thread when it’s going live.

                            Thanks.

                                I have many previous bills that don't have my opinions listed. I think it would be a great idea for me to be able to move specific bills I've voted for with strong opinions to the first slot seen when viewing my page. This lets me put the most important issues of mine to the forefront. And move around other issues i have yet to post my opinion on further from view.

                                  You can do something like this now where, when you add an opinion to a bill it should get sorted to the top.

                                  We’ll work on adding some features to make this even easier.

I would like a less sensitive option for submitting my opinions publically. Please implement an old school submit button.
