A Note About Rank Choice Voting
Minneapolis uses rank choice voting (RCV) to determine who gets a seat on the city council.
1. Voters will rank candidates in order of preference on the ballot: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
2. All First choice votes are counted. If no candidate wins enough votes, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated. This is when second and third choice votes matter!
3. You are not required to rank more than one candidate. However, if you are happy with more than one candidate and rank them, your ballot has more power!
For more information and resources regarding rank choice voting, see vote.minneapolismn.gov.
Every voter has the right to receive the assistance they require to achieve equitable access to the ballot box. Voters may request assistance if they're unable to read English, to mark the ballot, or have difficulty entering the polling place by a person of their choosing or two election judges.
Absentee ballots cannot be requested online. Instead, voters have to fill out the application and submit it in-person at 980 E Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55414.
The “Witness Section” of an absentee ballot’s signature envelope must be completed. Absentee ballots missing this information will be rejected.
Absentee ballots will not be counted if received after the Election Day deadlines. 3 p.m. for absentee ballots returned in-person. 8 p.m. for absentee ballots received by mail or a commercial delivery service
Have fun! Engaging in the civic process is essential for the health of our democracy. Be sure to enjoy this moment and remind yourself of the importance of your participation in voting for the future.
