Congress App for Android Phones

This app works great!
By the Sunshine Foundation.
Works with OpenCongress.org for immediate composition and contact of representatives in both legislative branches.
Check it out, I think you'll like it.

I appreciate the advice on my planned civil disobedience regarding photo id requirements to vote. I've done this kind of thing before, so I have a little experience with it.
