The members of the Minnetonka City Council have indicated interest in learning more about ranked-choice voting at an April study session.

City staffers will meet with advocates in early summer and prepare a report. The report, to be presented at a study session at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9, will contain more information about ranked-choice voting, pros and cons, costs, logistics, impact on city elections, what other cities have adopted it, what other cities have considered it and decided against it, what it would take to amend the city charter and background information about elections in general.
