What is LoveGov?
LoveGov is an organizing platform and social network for both politically passionate and politically curious people to
discover causes they care about, take action, and stay informed.
You answer questions, we match you with politicians, candidates, interest groups, and other LoveGov members based on your beliefs.
Who's your match?
Here's how it works.
Find out where you stand
Define your views by taking stances on issues and weighting their importance.
See how your congressman's voting record matches up to your positions.
Match with friends and strangers
Compare your beliefs with other people on LoveGov by hovering over their name or
picture, and instantly see the percentage of answers you share. Or view their profile to see a detailed comparison.
Comparisons give you an at-a-glance comparison to your political world.
The central % is your overall match. It is broken into the seven main topics -
National security, Social issues, Economy, Education, Energy, Environment, and Health.

Discover groups that share your passion
Join political parties, find groups in your area and get matched to organizations
that share your beliefs and interests. Or create your own group and gain visibility for your cause.
Advocate and express your beliefs
Answer questions and defend your positions, publicly support candidates,
sign petitions, and debate the issues in discussion threads.
Share and collaborate with platform tools
Post news, discuss current events, poll your community, organize your
group's efforts and coordinate with other groups.
Get the facts
LoveGov aggregates publicly available data on legislation, voting records, elections,
and other resources which can be easily browsed or referenced.
For instance, we host detailed information on every bill passed by or proposed to the US Congress during the past three congressional sessions.
Follow politics relevant to you
You can choose what groups and elections to follow, and we'll only show you content posted there.
We'll also suggest local groups and content.
By choosing what groups, regions, and elections to follow, you filter all the
political noise down to what is directly relevant to you.
Keep your private views private
LoveGov users can post anything publicly or anonymously, a feature intended to encourage open, honest discussions. You can also answer questions privately, which will improve your matches to others, but not their matches to you. We will never sell your personal data to third parties.
See where the world stands
All responses to questions are publicly available, and anyone can post questions
to LoveGov. By answering questions, users improve their matches on local,
state and federal levels and get to have their views heard.
