Who stands for you? Find your Civic Footprint.

In between my geologic-time-scale postings here at Polis, I also do things. Like make web-based applications such as the very brand new Civic Footprint.

Here's the skinny: if you live in the Chicagoland area, in less time than you can say "Cook County Clerk David Orr" you can get a list of the elected officials who represent you and a spiffy map of their districts. Sure, you could try to reverse engineer the info on your voter reg card or tediously crawl through a slew of disconnected and user-unfriendly websites to find this info, but it would still suck a lot more than our one-stop show. Plus, our's looks sweet.

It's a young project but we think it's already pretty cool and we have big plans for it. I hope you like it.
