Frequently Asked Questions

Does FlashVote prohibit ballot stuffing (voting multiple times)?
Yes – FlashVote allows each user to vote only once per survey question.
Can governments (or other users) see my personal information?
No. Governments and other users will know you by your screen name. By default, your screen name will be set to your real name (first name + last name), but you can change it to anything you want (up to 24 characters).

Government officials and other users cannot see any other personal information besides your screen name. One exception is when you send emails through FlashVote (for example, if you invite a friend, share a survey, or share survey results). Emails sent by FlashVote on your behalf will disclose your name and email unless sent anonymously.

In the section of the Identity form under “Your screen name”, select the option toCustomize a screen name. Enter your new screen name and click or tap “Submit”.
