Yes. Representative's should have ample time to evaluate legislation and receive input from their constituents, the people they actually represent - not their Party hierarchy or corporate/think-tank/out-of-state donors. And they should be required to record and make available on their websites in easy to see form the tallies of opinion from those constituents who take the time to contact them on legislation - this many "yeas" and this many "nays." It would be much easier for citizens to see if their representative actually votes in line with the majority views of their district - as opposed to a personal or dictated agenda - if this was done. My representative votes close to a straight Party line though the district is quite large and diverse demographically and geographically. It's hard to square her votes with opinions of any of the people I'm involved with through differing community activities. And since she never holds Town Halls, I have no way of discerning what the voices of opinion say from other communities that all together compose the entire district.
