The Burg is a community where you live. We live in a day and age where we are more connected to people in other countries than the people down the street. It’s time we build community with our real, actual communities, and in the process, make voting much easier.
How? By giving you the keys to your city. Local News, Reps, Nonprofits, Neighbors.
All in one place, built for you.
*available only in CA, email us and @ us with the area you want us to come to next!

• Anytime your reps are mentioned in the news, we’ll send the story straight to your phone
