Most people don’t know who their representatives are. Let’s correct that oversight, at least for those of you who come to this website!
On this page you’ll find some code which identifies the politicians representing a given address. You can either enter an address in the search box or “alt-click” on the map (option-click on a Mac) to get politician information. I wrote this piece of code as part of a larger project, but it stands on its own merits so I decided to release it to the public. Have fun!
(If you click or hit enter wait a second before leaving an angry comment – there are a ton of politicians and it takes 1-2 seconds to look them up. Also, scroll the map if you can’t see them all! And sorry – US only.)

If you want to use my code, go wild. You can find it by looking at the page source of this page. Note: if you decide to use the images, don’t load them from my domain. Download them here and host them elsewhere. Get your own API keys for MapQuest, Cloudmade and Sunlight as well. Credit me and link back here if you want!
