How the Public Whip Count Works

YOU ARE EMPOWERED

Register with ActOnPrinciples.  Tell your Members of Congress our stories and ask them their position on LGBT legislation. Log in and  record their position and their reasons on our Public Whip Count pages.

The Public Whip Count is based on the wiki-concept that allows any user, like you, to research, report and modify information.  This means that registered users of our website can easily and quickly learn who is for or against multiple pieces of legislation based on prior shared information, can directly contact legislators, and then can directly update the public whip count for others to see.  This cycle will repeat as we get closer and closer to understanding the actual collective position of Congress.

Here is the current list of Public Whip Counts we are conducting:

  • ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act) in US House: If you write an Action or Blog Post on this website, you can display an up-to-the-minute whip count on this legislation by inserting this code:
