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
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.

Women’s Issues – A look at some 2016 examples
The 2016 presidential election marked a significant historical achievement for women’s rights in the United States: a major political party selected a woman to be its candidate for the presidency. Due in part to Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, women’s issues became an important part of the national political discussion, inspiring conversations from the dinner table to all levels of government. In order to see how local governments across the country recently tackled similar issues, we perused the Voterheads database for some interesting stories. Here are three from the past couple of months!
Immigration at the Local Level – A look at some 2016 examples
Do you think of immigration only as a national and international issue? Unless you live along one of the United States’ borders, perhaps you think that immigration is not that important for your state, town, or city. This isn’t surprising. Immigration almost always comes up during presidential and congressional elections, like it did during the 2016 election. Its no wonder if you think of immigration only in those terms.
From concerns regarding the protection of the United States’ borders to the impact of immigration on the availability of jobs, its easy to see why the issue is so crucial at the highest levels of government. Yet is a local issue too! From the impact of new immigrant groups upon an area to the encouragement of diversity in dense populations, city and county governments continually address immigration in their day to day work. Keep reading to see how some of the local governments from the Voterheads database tackled issues related to immigration last month.
