Last November, voters approved the use of ranked choice voting for future City Council and mayoral elections. Starting with the
November 2, 2021 election, ranked choice voting will be used for municipal races. This changes how residents vote for mayor and City councilmember. This will not change how residents vote in federal, state, county or school board elections.
This fall, Bloomington voters will see one of the councilmember at-large seats on their ballot. Voters in Council District 3 and Council District 4 will also see their councilmember on the ballot. (The other councilmember at-large seat, all four council districts due to redistricting, and the mayor’s seat are next up for election in November 2023.)
The City’s existing election equipment, including ballot counters, are compatible with ranked choice voting and will not have to be replaced. For more information, visit blm.mn/vote.
