RCV: What We Learned & Where We Go From Here

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 Rep. Steve Simon 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 with wine and appetizers at 5:30 p.m., program at 6:00 p.m. 

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

WHAT:  Panel discussion moderated by Star Tribune columnist Lori Sturdevant:

  • Representative Steve Simon
  • Dr. Matt Filner, Associate Professor of Political Science at Metropolitan State University
  • Jeanne Massey, Fairvote MN Executive Director
  • Mohamud Noor, President of the Confederation of Somali Communities
  • Andy O'Leary, Betsy Hodges Campaign Manager
