Georgetown residents can now sign up for FlashVote, a survey tool that allows community members to have a voice in city government through text, email or voice responses, according to a release from the city.

“I encourage all our residents to sign up,” City Manager David Morgan said in the release. “It only takes one minute, about once a month, to help make our city better.”

FlashVote is a platform used to recruit a panel of residents representative of the entire community to answer short surveys, according to the release.

Furthermore, the platform is designed to gather feedback within 48 hours, allowing city government to gather statistically valid information from residents faster than other outreach methods, according to the city.

Georgetown leadership plans to continue other survey efforts, such as community town halls, online surveys and the biannual resident survey administered by Texas State University, according to the city.

“FlashVote is a tool the city is using to enhance, not replace, our current public engagement efforts,” said Aly Van Dyke, communications and public engagement director, in the release. “We know folks are busy, and we want to make engaging with the city quick and easy.”
