Minneapolis voters rate ranked choice voting

Minneapolis' mayoral election was the one of the first big tests of ranked choice voting in the country. The city's first open seat mayoral contest in decades drew 35 candidates and voters could pick their top three choices. How did that go? Listen to what the voters have to say.

  • RCV gives one a chance to select minor party candidates before making a choice of a major party candidate. This is what i did for mayor. Many things that eventually for better or worse became mainstream ideas started from minor candidates. A large minor party vote should show both DFL and Republicans that they leave something to be desired. Three council races taking a few days to pick a winner. So what!!! It's democracy in action and that may offend someone. tough - by on Thu, 11/07/2013 - 12:45pm
