Wellington Launches FlashVote Surveys

Wellington has partnered with FlashVote to launch a new platform to make it easier for residents to give their feedback. This new survey tool gives participants a convenient way to have a voice in village government through text, e-mail or voice responses.

FlashVote is a leading platform for online voting and public engagement, and makes it easy for residents to participate in the decision-making process and provide valuable feedback on issues that matter to them. FlashVote will help Wellington staff acquire statistically valid information directly from village residents, to inform decisions on services, programs and initiatives.

Residents may sign up now at www.flashvote.com/wellingtonfl, or call (775) 235-2240 to participate by phone or text only.

Signing up takes less than one minute and input is kept anonymous. When residents sign up, they can determine how surveys are received. They will receive a notification whenever there is a new survey, and they will have 48 hours to participate before voting 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.

“FlashVote will enhance our current public engagement efforts. We know everyone is busy, and we want to make engaging with the village quick and easy,” Village Manager Jim Barnes said.

The first surveys will be sent once the number of people who have signed up is large enough and includes a cross-section of the community.

“We’re excited to use the input collected in these surveys to inform decision-making at village hall in ways that serve our residents better,” Barnes said.
