Minneapolis: Are you ready to rank your vote this November 7?
Ranking your ballot 1-2- 3 gives you more choice and more power – and it’s so easy!
You’ll be voting for mayor, city council, Park Board and Board of Estimate and Taxation.
Simply select a first-choice candidate in the first column, a second-choice candidate in the second column, and a third-choice candidate in the third column. That’s it!
Identifying second-choice and third-choice candidates isn’t required, but it’s smart. Your backup choices matter, and will be counted if your first-choice candidate doesn’t make it through the early rounds of counting, until one candidate reaches the winning threshold

Happy Election Day – remember, Rank Your Vote 1-2- 3 on Nov. 7!
