WHAT DO THEY DO?  Follow this link for an overview of what our elected officials do.

Accountability is one of the bedrocks of our representative republic.  It provides a check on individuals, once elected,  who betray the promises they made during the campaign, or their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.

Voters must understand the importance of holding their representatives accountable once the elections are said and done.  The days are gone where we can fall asleep after an election, we must remain vigilant.

Many legislative report cards are prepared by national and state groups to help voters assess the voting records of their elected officials.  These can be an excellent tool to assist in educating yourself on those already in office.

(Note:  Many are posted on this website)

While most people are dissatisfied with government, incumbents typically are re-elected more than 90% of the time.    This statistic is very telling, and indicates that people do not hold their representatives accountable. 

There’s no substitute for doing your own homework on the candidates and issues ahead of the election, especially those already in office.
