This week, we’re super excited that our project This Is Your Rep On Guns was nominated for a Data Journalism Award in the Data-Driven Application category.
As we wrote about a couple of times on this blog, we have been tracking all 530+ representatives’ positions on gun control, updating it when news happens, and publishing their statements automatically via our Twitter robot @YourRepsOnGuns. 
It’s been a very fun project and one we hope that has been informative. We’ve received a number of emails from readers tipping us off to local articles and they’ve sent in letters from their rep explaining their position on gun control. 
If you want to help us be able to do more projects like this, there’s a People’s Choice component of the awards where you can vote for us. 
If you like the project and want to give us your vote, you can find us here. We’re only 70 votes away from first place! (Sometimes the site asks you to also log in to Facebook, but nothing gets posted from your account, we’ve checked.)
Thanks for the help these past few months!
