Karl McCollester and Matt Hudson are the founders of Voterheads. This website is meant to help citizens stay up-to-date with local politics, and no matter what time of the year it is or if the presidential elections are around or not, Karl and Matt are dedicated to providing access to the politics that impact us every day.
