GovTrack.us is a website developed by then-student Joshua Tauberer, and based in Washington, D.C., who launched it as a hobby. It enables its users to track the bills and members of the United States Congress. Users can add trackers to certain bills. The website collects data on members of Congress, allowing the users to check voting records and attendance relative to peers.
It was cited by Clyde Haberman in the New York Times, and was mentioned as striving to help educate voters about legislation by The San Francisco Chronicle, and the student wire service University Wire said it was making it easy for people to learn about the government.
