2018 Candidates


Tim Walz & Peggy Flanagan

“Ranked Choice Voting is one of those ways to make sure people feel like their vote is being counted, feels like it really matters to them, increases participation, and gives us better trust in our democracy. So I fully support this. If I'm given the opportunity to be your governor I'll promote it everywhere we go.”

“What I love about Ranked Choice Voting is it forces candidates, no matter what party they might represent, to appeal to a more broad swath of the electorate.”

CD5 Ilhan Omar

“In a time when so many forces seem determined to restrict participatory democracy, RCV offers a simple, sensible, and proven way to expand it. I’m proud to stand on the front lines of voting reform in Minnesota.”

"MPLS and STP used a ranked choice system to good effect in 2017. I support RCV and would like to see more municipalities have the resources and ability to implement as they see fit. Civil campaigning as a result of RCV means a more civil dialogue around the issues that matter most."

“If forward-thinking Minnesota communities want to innovate – if they’re eager to embrace change that will broaden political participation, encourage substance and civility in campaigns, and foster smarter, more effective, more representative government – the least we can do is get out of the way and let them do it.”
