Legislative Tracking Site in the news

I have written previously in this space about our new legislative tracking website, NewMexicoVotes.org. Recently, we released our “missed votes study” which simply tallies up which legislators are showing up to vote when they are supposed to.
Certainly, there are often legitimate excuses (illness being one example) for legislators to miss votes, but nonetheless, we feel that voters should have some idea if their elected officials are doing their jobs or not. One story from the Santa Fe New Mexican is available here. The Associated Press also picked up the story which can be found here.
The missed votes study itself can be found here.
