Our Story

Local governments are working hard to serve their communities. To do that, they need to understand the values and priorities of their residents – all their residents, not just the ones that speak up at public meetings or participate in online discussions. Getting this wrong can have disastrous consequences, like wasting millions of dollars for services that only a few people want, or building new facilities when cheaper alternatives exist. Getting a clear understanding of the whole community has traditionally been very difficult when only a small percentage of residents participate. FlashVote is here to change all of this.

FlashVote was created with two goals:

  • Get everyone involved – Eliminate the many reasons residents don’t participate in their local governments by making it quick, easy, convenient, and accessible.
  • Produce useful data – Generate statistically valid, representative input that governments can trust when making data-driven decisions.

FlashVote is the first good-government service offered by the Governance Sciences Group
