New App to Find Your Legislator

Posted by:    |    Thursday, February 28, 2013

The WAYEO app allows Hoosiers to identify and contact the elected officials who represent them using GPS from their smartphone or tablet.  It provides contact information for over 12,000 elected officials at all levels of government from president to school board. Once an elected official is selected, the user can click on the official's phone number or e-mail and the smart phone or tablet will automatically open an e-mail or initiate a call.

Users can also view an interactive map that identifies the boundaries of an elected official's district. WAYEO utilizes Geographic Information System (GIS) technology and county precinct information to create an all-inclusive map highlighting an area represented by an elected official.  The app will also locate districts by allowing Hoosiers to enter an address or scroll through an interactive map.

Apple users can access the application via iTunes from a mobile device or computer by searching "WAYEO."  Android users can access the WAYEO application via their mobile app store by searching "Who Are Your Elected Officials."
