Do you have 1 minute a month to help make the City of Valdez better?

FlashVote launch

The City of Valdez and FlashVote are working to make civic participating, accessible and simple for the Valdez community. The City of Valdez recently entered into a contract with FlashVote, a cutting-edge survey provider that will collect timely resident feedback on current municipal topics of concern. The first survey is expected to go live in August or September.

FlashVote creates a series of 1-minute surveys on timely City issues that residents from all areas of the community may receive by email, phone call, or text message, depending on the method the participant chooses. Surveys will cover a wide range of topics like public safety concerns, recreation, City issues or upcoming events, and much more.

After a resident signs up to be a part of the survey pool, they will quickly receive a notification whenever a survey is launched by the City of Valdez. Participants will have up to 48 hours to complete the survey before it closes. Once the survey closes, FlashVote immediately tabulates all the responses and provides the results to City administration and the public.

Because of the ease of the survey, FlashVote gives residents who typically don’t interact with the City a greater opportunity to provide feedback.

All responses are anonymous and FlashVote does not share participants personal information with anyone. Interested Valdez residents are encouraged to sign up at

City staff will host a booth at the Gold Rush Days Open Air Market on Saturday, August 6, from 10am - 5pm and Sunday, August 7, from 12 - 5pm, to provide the public with more information about FlashVote or to help community members sign up!
