RCV: What We Learned & Where We Go From Here

On November 5, Minneapolis voters elected a new mayor, city council and other city leaders using Ranked Choice Voting. An astounding 88 percent of voters ranking their preferences for mayor and by all media accounts, voters proved they found RCV simple to use. Mayor-Elect Betsy Hodges prevailed by building the broadest coalition of support, the kind of campaigning that RCV fosters. 

Please join us Thursday, December 5, for an in-depth analysis and conversation with Mayor-Elect Betsy Hodges and others about Minneapolis' first big test of Ranked Choice Voting and what it means for the future of RCV. 

WHEN: Thursday, December 5, 2013 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. Reception at 5:30 p.m., program at 6:00 p.m. 

WHERE:  Fredrikson & Bryon, 200 S 6th St, Suite 4000
