We created the Legislative Scorecard WordPress plugin to help advocacy groups add scorecards to their websites in an easy-to-use, appealing format.
Our plugin connects to the Bill Track 50 API, pulls in scorecard info (bills, scores, comments, and legislators), and displays this on the user’s WordPress website. We auto-populate everything, including official legislator headshots, to make this as seamless as possible.
The user’s typical workflow would be:
- Use Bill Track 50’s scorecard tool to choose a set of bills and score them.
- Bill Track 50 takes care of totaling the scores for each scorecard, tracks how legislators are voting, and scores them based on the user’s scores for each bill.
- The user installs our plugin, which connects to the Bill Track 50 scorecard of their choice and pulls in that data.
- The user’s scorecard data is then displayed on their WordPress website, just like you see in our legislative scorecard demo.
- Whenever they update their Bill Track 50 scorecard, our plugin takes care of pulling in that updated data into the user’s website.

In the demo, you can:

The demo connects to Bill Track 50’s API to pull the latest information for each legislator. However, all scores and comments are created for demo purposes only.
