Simpolfy is simplifying politics. Click, tweet, text, or use Facebook to tell us where you stand on an issue and we will take care of the rest. We tell your representatives now and every time there's legislation around the issue. We hold them accountable by telling you what they have or haven't done about the issue. We'll alert you if there's any important news about the issue and we grade all of the candidates on your ballot based on the issues you told us are important to you.
We are a politically impartial, data-driven organization with the mission to improve democracy.
