Indiana-based IT firm's voter education portal “Who Are Your Elected Officials?” has recieved national recognition, said Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson.

The one-of-a-kind tool is being showcased at an IT conference in San Diego by its developer, 39°north. Hoosiers can find out who is representing them from the federal government down to the township level. Other states may soon benefit from the expertise offered by 39°north and its ‘Who Are Your Elected Officials’ application found on the Secretary of State’s website. The Bloomington-based company was built from the ground up by Chris Walls and Perm Radhakrishnan who will make a presentation on its products at an international software developers’ conference in California this week.
The ‘Who Are Your Elected Officials’ website allows Hoosier voters to enter their home address and view a map with their elected officials. Federal, state, county, municipal, township, and school board officials are all readily available, and the website includes contact information such as each official’s website, phone number, or email.
The ‘Who Are Your Elected Officials’ website may be accessed on the Election Division homepage of Secretary of State’s website: http://www.in.gov/sos/elections/index.htm
