Columbia, SC─ September 19, 2016 ─ Voterheads announced today that citizens in all counties and cities across the country will be able to stay informed on local issues by registering online at www.Voterheads.com.
“We are excited about launching our free service to citizens nationwide,” says Karl McCollester, CEO of Voterheads. “Our goal is to make democracy more user-friendly at all levels. Voterheads helps people find out what’s happening at local council meetings, school board meetings, and so much more. Finding and commenting on what’s happening at these meetings has always been difficult. Now, by subscribing to our service, citizens will be able to find out about any local meeting agenda item that might affect them, such as a nearby property owner applying for re-zoning. Subscribers can then simply cast their votes and comment online showing their like or dislike of that issue.”
About the Service
Potential subscribers can go to www.Voterheads.com and enter a zip code, then select local organizations to monitor. Over 100 key interests, such as taxes, gun control, and civil rights, can be monitored. After subscribing, an email will arrive each week containing a custom report with upcoming meetings, important agenda items, and issues that match personal interests. Subscribers can reply to the email with questions or comments. Voterheads will forward those questions and comments to the appropriate officials.
The goal of Voterheads is to provide an ongoing social media platform and alert service providing users with information and the ability to vote and comment on local public meeting agenda items in which they have an interest. The service puts forth user-friendly candidate research in the form of a sample ballot linking to news, blogs, and other information specific to each ballot name and item.
