The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) launched this site to help citizens, especially activists, keep track of how their representatives in the Congress voted on legislation which involved civil liberties. Users can view members' voting records in several ways. They can compare individual member's records with ACLU positions or the records of other representatives from the same state. Alternatively, votes on selected key bills can be broken down by party, gender, region, state, or committee. The site also offers a guide to using the scorecards as well as additional scorecards for selected votes in the 104th Congress. This site naturally reflects the ACLU's own political priorities, but anyone with a concern or curiosity for the issues and legislation highlighted will find much of interest.
