I’m building a site for a charity that wants to help users contact their local government representative.
Is it possible to use an API (like https://developers.google.com/civic-information/) so I can have users type in their address, and the the respective members will appear.
To clarify, I already have the 400+ representatives in the CMS, each with their own styled divs that appear with all the required info. Currently I’m using jetboost.io to search for them by name, and this works fine.
But the client has requested users type their address in and then have the representative appear.
I haven’t dealt with APIs before, so I would most likely be hiring someone external for this part. But before I pursue this avenue, I just wanted to make sure it was possible.
Thanks so much!
