Find Your Legislators
About Open States
Open States aggregates legislative information from all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. This information is then standardized, cleaned, and published to the public via OpenStates.org, a powerful API, and bulk downloads. OpenStates.org enables individuals to find out who represents them, look up information on an important bill that’s been in the news, discover how their representatives are voting, or just stay current with what is happening in their capital. Additionally, our API and bulk downloads see millions of hits every month from advocacy organizations, journalists, researchers, and many others.
Bill, vote, legislator, and committee data is collected from official sources, linked at the bottom of relevant pages. In general bill & vote data is collected nightly via our scrapers while legislator data is curated by our team & volunteers like you.
