Fresh off a second victory for ranked choice voting in Minnetonka where voters rejected repeal and voted in favor of ranked choice voting, this time with an even bigger margin, Minnesotans are once again demonstrating that they love ranked choice voting.
In addition to the ballot measure victory, five Minnesota cities – Minneapolis, St. Paul, St. Louis Park, Minnetonka, and Bloomington – used ranked choice voting to elect their local leaders, and the elections were a resounding success.
There were diverse slates of candidates running and winning, issue-focused campaigns, and winning candidates that built broad coalitions of voter support. The elections ran smoothly in all five cities and were among the more than 21 cities across the country using RCV for local elections this year, from New Mexico to Utah to Minnesota to Maine.
This year’s elections show that Minnesota is ready to expand ranked choice voting to more cities, and we invite you to join us in making this a reality!
Ranked Choice Voting is a simple change to the ballot but one that has the power to reduce political divisions and make our elections more civil, inclusive, representative, and responsive. At a time when partisan divisiveness and misinformation are threatening our democracy, ranked choice voting is one of the top reforms to save it.
We want to bring this critical reform across the state of Minnesota. Your donation will help us educate voters, candidates, and elected officials about the many benefits of RCV and how it will strengthen democracy in our state and country. And we have an exciting announcement: Any amount you give today will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $15,000!
We would not be able to do this important work without dedicated supporters like you.
Thank you for your commitment to a stronger, more inclusive democracy.
