Valdez residents are encouraged to sign up for FlashVote, a survey tool that gives residents a voice in city government through text, email, or voice responses.
FlashVote is a public survey research platform that recruits a panel of residents representing the entire community to answer short surveys. FlashVote is designed to gather feedback within 48 hours, allowing the City government to get useful and statistically valid information from residents quickly.
Sign-up takes less than one minute, and survey data is anonymous. Residents can sign up online or by calling 775-235-2240. Personal or demographic information collected by FlashVote is never shared with the City or anyone else.
When residents sign up, they can determine how they want to participate in surveys with text, email, or phone call options. They will receive a notification whenever there is a new survey and have 48 hours to participate before the survey closes. Once a survey is closed, everyone who participated will automatically receive a summary of the overall results and be able to see how their responses compare to the group.
Responses from FlashVote surveys will be used to inform City decisions on services, programs, and initiatives.
