Have your say on the future of Minneapolis
Vote now or tomorrow – whatever works for you – but be sure to vote before or on Tuesday November 2. There are lots of candidate offices to choose from, but this year there are some important ballot questions to consider.
To help you along we’ve posted your sample ballot, from the MN Secretary of State, so you can get an idea of who and what’s on the ballot – it’ll give you a chance to check out the info before you vote.
If you don’t want to wait until Tuesday, anyone who can vote in Minneapolis on Election Day can vote early at the Early Vote Center, 980 Hennepin Ave. E. The Center is now open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday from now until the election. Weekday hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Friday, Oct. 29. The center’s last day of service is Monday, Nov. 1, which is the day before Election Day, and hours that day are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Minneapolis voters will use ranked-choice voting to elect a mayor and members of the City Council, Board of Estimate and Taxation, and Park and Recreation Board. Ranked-choice voting is a way of voting that eliminates the need for separate primary elections. Voters can rank up to three candidates for each office. The ballot has three columns, and choices are made from left to right in those columns. Ranked-choice voting is used only for municipal elections. Info: vote.minneapolismn.gov/rcv.
The City has an elections-focused website: vote.minneapolismn.gov. This website is a central place to go for accurate, timely information about this year’s election, ranked-choice voting and to find where to vote.
