iPhone app to vote your opinion on City resolutions, County ordinances, or other local legislation. Make City Council and County Commissioners accountable starting today! The goal is to increase transparency and engagement in the legislative process in your community.

The app could match each voter with their voting location, store their representative and voted legislation in a list, and allow the voter to update their opinion/votes. Users could also email or call the commissioner to express their opinion more in depth from the representative's profile screen.

Could use Sunlight's API to find zip codes based on GPS locations. Would need a dataset of local legislators by zip code. Watchdog's API could provide some raw data and cross-references.
