keeping track of your elected officials

Step #1 – Visit websites like this and this to create a master list of your elected representatives in government and education.

Step #5 – Size page to fit your planner and glue it into your planner or stick it in a page protector in your planner.
Step #6 – Whenever an official makes a decision that you find particularly excellent or horrible, draw a small arrow or make a tally mark in the appropriate column.
