2013 Minneapolis Election Using Ranked Choice Voting

Minneapolis voters approved a charter amendment in 2006 by a nearly two-to-one margin mandating the use of Ranked Choice Voting for municipal elections. The first opportunity for Minneapolis voters to use RCV was in the November 2009 elections. The implementation was a huge success, with 95 percent of polled voters – and 97 percent of people of color  reporting they found it easy to use. This year will be the first time the city has used RCV for a wide-open mayoral contest with multiple contenders.

FairVote Minnesota is collaborating with the City of Minneapolis to educate the public about Ranked Choice Voting in preparation for the November election.
