In this talk, we will give an overview of how U.S. Congressional voting records are used in election cycles to attack candidates, and demonstrate how our tool, iCheck, lets you "fact-check" such claims by exploring and breaking down how legislators vote with political parties and the President, over issues of importance to different special-interest groups, and more. We will also describe some challenges of working with this data and making our analyses efficient and responsive.
