WELCOME TO VOTERHEADS corporate blog

We want to make democracy more user-friendly – at every level – but in particular, at the local level where not only educated voting (Do you really know who to vote for at the local level when you close that curtain?), but finding and commenting on what is happening at local council meetings, school board meetings, etc. has been very difficult. With today’s technology, being an empowered citizen is overdue and Voterheads is committed to doing something about it. Read More

Head on over

Voterheads is forward-thinking, user-friendly, government-focused goodness, made magically easy.

If you haven't already, go see it for yourself.  Once you see how well-organized government can be, you'll wonder why we didn't do this earlier.
