Manteca Residents May Receive Invitations to Fill Out a Monthly Survey

Anonymous Surveys Via FlashVote Will Take Less Than One Minute to Complete

The City of Manteca is collaborating with a public survey research platform, FlashVote, to engage the community and gather valuable input from residents. Beginning Wednesday, February 2, some Manteca residents will receive text messages from FlashVote to sign up for monthly surveys. The City will use this community input to guide decisions about policies and projects.

“As a local government agency, our continual goal is to serve our community better; it can be incredibly helpful to learn what the community, as a whole, is thinking,” said Toni Lundgren, Manteca Deputy City Manager. “We’re excited to use the input collected in these surveys to inform our decision-making processes. We hope this makes it even easier and more equitable for residents to give feedback to their local government.”

Manteca residents who want to participate in FlashVote surveys can also manually sign up at or call 775-235-2240 to participate by phone. The sign-up process takes less than one minute to complete and all survey data is anonymous. Any personal or demographic information collected by FlashVote is never shared with the City or anyone else.

When residents sign up, they can determine how surveys are received: by email, text or phone call. They will receive a notification whenever there is a new survey, and then have 48 hours to participate before voting closes. Once the survey is closed, everyone who participated will automatically receive a summary of the anonymous results and be able to see how their responses compare to the group’s.

Manteca residents will begin receiving FlashVote survey invitations via text message, starting Wednesday, February 2. The first survey will focus on allowing food trucks throughout the city.
