During the LA teachers’ strike, we polled LA County to see how folks felt about the standoff between UTLA and LAUSD. Here’s what we found.
On the Burg, we’re trying to revolutionize the democratic process. How, you might ask? Well, it’s simple: Polls.
But these aren’t just straw polls. This is the future of voting. We give verified voters (like you) the information they need to express their opinions directly in the app. Then we send our results straight to the government. This is a brand new way for folks to make their voice heard in a way that can’t be ignored. Responding to polls is how you keep your reps in check.
The response to the Ballot Tool was far, far beyond our expectations. Countless people told us our tool helped them vote and we were captivated by their stores, so we thought we’d spotlight a few!
Voting shouldn't be this hard, so we're doing something about it. Introducing: The Burg - Ballot Tool. Easily learn about everything on your ballot in a simple, beautiful nonpartisan format. Vote now in the app, and bring it with you to the polls, side-by-side! Feel confident and vote prudently in the Midterm Election on November 6th
So, why does no one vote, when we used to a couple decades ago? Learning about your city is absurdly difficult and incredibly boring. Especially in a world, where people don’t know what it’s like to be bored anymore. The Burg is tackling this task by building a new front page of your city that is informative, fascinating, and makes it considerably easier to vote.
