Congresspedia has articles on each member of Congress, many of which are quite extensive. In the year since we launched the project, however, none of the staff or citizen editors noticed one glaring omission: there is no easy way to show all the members by their party affiliation. As you can imagine, it would be very useful to be able to sort the Democrats from the Republicans, so we're going to fix this and would like your help.
It's very easy:
- Go to the "Members of Congress by state" page, select your state and then select a member of Congress.
- Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the profile to where the "Categories" box.
- If the party affiliation is not displayed, click the last "" link on the right.
- Add "[
[Category:Republican Party (USA)]
]" or "[
[Category:Democratic Party (USA)]
]" to the bottom of the window (where the other categories links are).
That's it! Make sure to use the "(USA)" to help our non-US editors out and, from all the readers of Congresspedia and SourceWatch, thank you!
