Each year, NETWORK publishes a chart of key votes on social justice issues that indicates how all of the senators and representatives voted. This is an excellent tool for evaluating how well your elected official serve the common good. Congressional offices are delighted when they receive high rankings from us.
Here are some ways you can use the voting record:
- Contact your Members of Congress to discuss their overall records and specific key votes. And ask your friends and neighbors to do the same. Legislators need to know that constituents are paying attention to how they vote.
- Share the voting records of your legislators with people in your area.
- Write a letter-to-the-editor or op-ed about your legislators’ votes.
You can see NETWORK’s most recent voting record here .
