EMPOWRD DATA SOURCES
EMPOWRD aggregates civic and political data that is acquired from a plethora of sources and then modeled and managed from within our own Civic Data Manager. Our specific sources for data are as follows:
PARTNER ORGANIZATION DATA >> EMPOWRD works directly with each organization to ensure we are using proper content for their civic engagement activities.
JURISDICTION BOUNDARIES DATA >> Boundary files are acquired from the Secretary of State's (example: https://sos.ga.gov/OpenRecords/) office and via open data request that we directly send to municipalities via their respective city websites

(For example, for Atlanta related data we go to atlatlanta.gov/government - we take a similar approach to other elected officials as well)
PHOTOS >> Elected Leader and Candidate Photo Data is collected from Ballotpedia (ballotpedia.org)
CANDIDATE DATA [Websites, Photos, Office Information] >> Candidate Data is collected via EMPOWRD's partnership with Represent Georgia (repga.org) who provides us candidate data gathered from their team of volunteers for the state of Georgia, for other states we use a combination of Official Candidate websites and Ballotpedia (ballotpedia.org)

Ratings and Reviews
Very useful for effectively contacting politicians
This app is pretty cool. I just used Empowrd to email my mayor and city Councilmembers— the ones that I actually vote for.
Contacting politicians that don’t represent your area is basically a waste of time. Empowrd tells you specifically who your representatives are and gives you multiple specific ways to contact them directly— including their office phone number and email address.
You can also enter the causes and organizations you support, so Empowrd can keep you informed about efforts to support them and help you participate.
I am an older lady :) and I still found this to be a really simple way to regularly contact my elected officials.
Loved the ease of setting it up! One suggestion is that for the engagement category you add, citizen. Thanks!
