I suggest Countable ...

Skip voting on a bill (and hide it)

If I don't want to vote on an issue, or I don't care enough to vote, how do I just go on to the next issue without a Yea or Nay?

        Does "completed" mean this "great idea" has been rejected?
        Below, someone said that a Countable user could "just swipe left" to proceed. That does not work for this Android user.

        I see this as Countable's biggest flaw - one get's to a bill that they have no opinion on and they can no longer even view other bills listed under that Issue. Please add a 'Skip' button.

        This "Great idea!" is 2 years old, it took you a year to acknowledge it was a great idea, yet nothing has been done. When I go into a voting booth I can skip a question - give the voters freedom!

        I am frustrated every time I see a bill I don't know or care enough about to vote on. I bet you are getting a lot of 'frustration' votes because you are not providing a way forward. I have stopped probably five times just shut the browser. C'mon guys, fix this.

        I agree, I should be able to swipe and just skip that bill. You can reintroduce it to my queue the next time I login, but some these, I just do not have an opinion right now.

        How do I do this? Since the suggestion showed as completed, I assume there must be some way

        12 March 2017: Still looking for that "SKIP" option.

        I concur; that is exactly what I logged on to say. This is a lousy feature. It doesn't keep me clicking away on your site, it makes me give up and leave it.

        Why is this marked as "Completed?" I don't see any way to do this - swiping left doesn't work, press-and-hold doesn't work, there's no context-specific menu that I can see, it's not hidden at the bottom of the page...

        Need to know how to stop getting 600 emails telling someone endorsed my comments. I have iphone

        Look into it? You didn't think of this when you designed the app? This is so obvious a need for your users. It happened to me on my third vote.

        Simply swipe to the left to pass over an irrelevant issue.

        I agree, we should be able to chose to hide bills.
