NEED TO GO VOTE!
Election Day here in Minneapolis is critical for two big reasons:
- The City Council is trying an end-run to consolidate power by eliminating the Park & Rec Board. Vote NO.
- The City Citizens will be able to use the Ranked-Choice (or Instant Run Off) Voting for the first time.
GO VOTE!This method of voting requires a hand-count.
The fact there are no electronic machines involved means the election results won't be in until December. However, unlike the last election to-do here, this won't involve million-dollar law suits.
Here are video explanations of it from MPR. It's brilliant. Voting with Post-Its. Really good visualization.
If only one person gets to win: the Mayor
If more than one person can win: City Council
YOU STILL NEED TO GO VOTE!
If you're confused about how to vote, post your question here & I'll answer it. As long as it is before 10 p.m. Monday night. My civic duty doesn't superceede getting a good night sleep on this topic.
