About FlashVote

Stillwater is the first city in Oklahoma to start using FlashVote, a scientific survey service provider. The surveys are five questions or less and take no more than one to two minutes to fill out. The surveys will cover a wide range of topics.

When residents sign up, they get to determine how they want to receive the surveys — whether by email, text or phone call. They will receive a notification whenever there is a new survey, and they will have 48 hours to participate before voting closes. Once the survey is closed, anyone who participated will receive the results and will see how his or her responses compare to the group.

FlashVote works to engage residents by making participation simple and anonymous. While personal information is not shared with the City, it does allow for localized reports.
