This year St. Paul voters will be using Ranked Choice Voting (or Ranked Voting) for our City Council elections. RCV is a tested and trusted voting system that St. Paul voters approved in 2009 and have used in both 2011 and 2013. RCV upholds majority rule, helps ensure more representative outcomes and encourages civil campaigning. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!
Four at-large seats on the St. Paul School Board are also up for election this year. This School Board election does not use RCV. Voters can vote for up to 4 candidates, but will not rank their preferences.
If you have more questions about RCV or want to volunteer with our education campaign contact FairVote St. Paul Campaign Director Erik Anderson at Erik.Anderson@fairvotemn.org or 612-723-7943.
