What We Do
The Burr Project was founded on an idea that government, its laws, and politicians should be more accessible, to anyone. With that in mind, we have set out to create the largest database of the United States legal and political system ever created. And we're proud of how far we have come.
Aaron is our much beloved database, which we can confidently say will be the most complete database of politicians, their voting records, bills, laws and voting data ever assembled. For the average voter, access will always and forever be free. While we do wade into more commercial applications, we believe in government transparency, something that is becoming harder and harder, despite an increasingly digital age. Our propriety algorithms, on top of our massive database allow everything from accurate prediction of if a bill will be made into law, to advanced analytics for campaigns, and even research assistance for law firms and students. Every day, we find more and more uses for Aaron, and look forward to helping him grow to best serve the American people.
