      1. Nice site.
      2. for cases where vote is 100%, no red should appear on the bar.
      3. http://www.govit.com/Pages/UsGovernment.aspx
      Change "house representatives" either to "house of representatives" or
      just "house"
      (Actually, personally I prefer proper case, but I realize that's a
      style choice.)
      4. At that same URL you can click on a party, but nothing seems to
      happen if you do
      5. If there are 0 govit members in a district, how could you get a
      count of how many agree or disagree? I'm not totally clear on that
      stat, for instance, I'm looking at Wayne Gilchrest, District 1, MD
      6. On login page, provide a link for a new registrant
      7. Great site, but not exactly enamored with the name "govit" It'll do.
      8. Are you willing to share your congressional map? I got bolluxed up
      last year when working with flash and congressional districts because
      my maps had too darned many points on the boundaries. Looks like
      you've got a terrifically generalized file. Fast loading, and good.
