Minneapolis officials will hold 14 voter training workshops in the next few weeks, designed to reduce confusion in the city's first Ranked Choice Voting election this November.
At the events, participants can practice voting on Ranked Choice ballots. The ballot allows voters to rank their top three choices for mayor, city council, the board of estimate and taxation, and the park and recreation board.
The city has also created an online educational video and an interactive tool to practice using the new ballot.
The video stresses that voters cannot select the same candidate for all three ranked slots and should be careful not to mark their choices in the wrong section.
"This will be an historic moment in Minneapolis elections," said Patrick O'Connor, the city's elections director. "The city of Minneapolis wants to make sure that all voters are prepared when they come to the polls November 3."
Online resources and workshop details are available on the Vote Minneapolis website.
