When does VoterVoice switch to newly elected officials?
VoterVoice switches over to new legislators at the date of their inauguration. That is the date at which they assume representation of their district. Before that, the lame duck officials are still the ones casting votes.

How long does VoterVoice keep information on lame duck / former officials?
VoterVoice does not maintain a downloadable database of information on former legislators. If you wish to keep their information on file, please download it prior to the inauguration of the new officials.
When will VoterVoice switch to new district lines?
We switch over to new district lines at the date set by the individual state's Secretary of State. That date often coincides with the beginning of a session and may be delayed due to litigation.
When will VoterVoice have new committee assignments and office information?
Changes to committee assignments and office information tend to roll out over a number of weeks, especially at the beginning of session. The VoterVoice Research team goes through Congress and state legislatures manually to capture those updates, cycling through the various states. If you notice any incorrect data, please email specifics to email@example.com. We can adjust that manually without waiting for the Research team to update the chamber as a whole. Additionally, we manually check and update committee assignments whenever you target a committee in an advocacy campaign.
What about local governments?
VoterVoice updates information on local governments as they are needed. If you are planning a local advocacy campaign, please alert firstname.lastname@example.org. We will ensure that it is up-to-date. Otherwise, we will check it when you target it in the campaign.
