Vote Count: The newest tool in the toolbelt

With version 1.1 of CapitolBuddy, soon to be submitted, there’s an exciting new tool included. It’s called Vote Count and if you’ve got your eye on any bill in the legislature, this is where you’ll track how each legislator will vote.

Start by choosing Vote Count from the main menu:

Then push the + button to add a bill, name it and choose the which house of the legislature. Select your new bill to see the vote count.

When you’re in the vote count for your bill, there are several options to get you started. Start by adding all the Democrats or Republicans to the YEA or NAY side. By default everyone starts as a swing vote.

Then choose any of the tabs to see which legislators are in there. It’s always ordered by district for you to easily find the person you’re looking for. To change which category any vote falls into, swipe them left or right as if you were swiping them to the next tab over (i.e. Swiping right from the YEA votes sends the legislator to the Swing votes. Swiping left from the YEA votes sends the legislator around to the NAY votes.) Click the (i) button on the right to go to their info and notes page.

Look for the app to arrive in 2-3 weeks so you can try it yourself!
