VoteMate is made by one person

My name's Laef Kucheran! I'm a 22-year-old web developer from Vancouver.

I worked over 200 hours running VoteMate for this election. I volunteer all that time and pay for the site's expenses out of my own pocket because I believe it can help people vote. That matters to me.

Did VoteMate help you? Perhaps you can help me!
