All municipal elections in Minneapolis use ranked-choice voting. Learn more about how ranked-choice voting works and how to mark your ballot in elections using ranked-choice voting.
Once available in mid-September, you can download your sample practice ballot for the Nov. 7 Municipal Election based on your home address. The ballot at each of the 132 voting precincts in the City of Minneapolis is different, with races differing based on address, and with a different order for candidates appearing on the ballot in many offices.
A sample ballot, or practice ballot, lists all the candidates running for office and any ballot questions, just as the ballot for your precinct will appear when you go to vote. A sample ballot is an excellent resource for preparing to vote. You can bring your sample ballot with you as a reference when you go to vote at either the Early Vote Center or at your polling place on Election Day.
