Event Details

 

Greetings Northsiders!


It is with great pleasure that we, a coalition of northside community organizations of color and allies, announce the first ever Northside Candidate Forums organized for and by northsiders moderated by Reg Chapman of WCCO News.


Given the nature of this year’s election cycle, the change in racial/ethnic demographics in the city and the use of RCV, the winner of both the ward 5 and ward 4 council races, and the city’s mayoral election will be decided on the voter turnout in communities of color. The residents of these communities have suffered from a lack of unified city wide representation over the last 15 years. Our community has been victimized and neglected over the years and we want to have a say in the shaping of our future.

Executive directors from North Minneapolis neighborhood organizations and several community partners, have come together to host  several community forums. Our goal is to provide candidates with an opportunity to really understand the geographical, racial and economic diversity of North Minneapolis, give residents a chance to get to know their future public officials and to educate the city’s one and only minority majority voting ward on RCV.

 

RANKED CHOICE VOTING EVENT

 

Come enjoy free food and practice ranking your favorite to prepare for the new voting system in Minneapolis


Thursday Oct, 17th 7:00-8:30 PM
Parkway United church
3120 Washburn Ave N


Come on out and find out the answers to the following questions:

  • What is  RCV
  • Is RCV the reason why we have 35 mayoral candidates on the ballot?
  • Can I vote for just one person or for one person as my 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice?
  • How will this impact communities of color? 
  • When will the results be in?
  • What if I fill out the ballot wrong?
  • I heard there were a higher number of spoiled ballots in Ward 5 in 2009 - does that mean those voters votes didnt count?
  • Where else do they use RCV?

 

 

 

All forums will be moderated by Reg Chapman of WCCO
