Help get out the vote by making an election video
If you like to make short videos, the City of Minneapolis needs your help to educate and excite potential voters before this November’s city election. Minneapolis is holding a video contest, asking for video entries that help get out the vote, and educate people about ranked-choice voting, which voters will use Nov. 5.
The contest includes two categories:
- 30- or 60-second videos that are usable as a video public service announcement
- 1- to 3-minute instructional video
Two winners will be chosen, one in each category. The winners will be featured on the City’s elections website and on a City cable channel. Entries must be received by Oct. 17, 2013.
The City is looking for non-partisan videos that convey the importance of voting and encourage people to vote. Creativity is encouraged, but examples of possible video topics include:
- Why voting matters
- The importance of voting in a municipal election
- Being prepared for Election Day
- How ranked-choice voting works (you can also check out a video the City has produced on ranked-choice voting)
