Minnesota: Ranked Choice Voting option for municipalities

Campaign Status: Loss


In May 2024, lawmakers failed to pass the RCV Local Options bill. Despite this setback, we’ll continue to work with local Minnesota partners on RCV opportunities in 2025 and beyond.

The Policy

Pass HF 3276 which gives municipalities the option to use ranked choice voting in local elections


RepresentUs is supporting in-state groups like Fair Vote Minnesota to pass a bill that would allow municipalities to use RCV in their elections and ease the adoption process. Since 2006, Ranked Choice Voting has been used in a number of municipal elections in places like Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Bloomington, Saint Louis Park, and Minnetonka. In 2023, Minnetonka voters voted to preserve RCV in their city following a high-profile fight.

Who’s Involved?

FairVote Minnesota has been leading the way on RCV in the state for many years, and their work is supported by a number of pro-democracy groups on the ground like Clean Elections Minnesota, We Choose Us, Latino Lead, NAACP, and League of Women Voters of MN. The full list of endorsements for this legislation is on their website.
