Our flagship OpenCongress.org reached 29 million visits and 70 million pageviews over eight years, with 200,000 registered users. Other sites such as OpenGovernment.org, AskThem.io, and Councilmatic help build public knowledge about issues in their cities, create open data about legislation, and connect residents to everyone who represents them in government.
