Will there be ballot questions this election?
St. Paul voters will have a ballot question this fall that will ask voters to approve tax increases for street maintenance and park upgrades.
The text of the question:
Should the City of Saint Paul establish a one percent (1%) sales and use tax over the next 20 years to generate $738,000,000 to repair and improve streets and bridges, $246,000,000 to improve parks and recreation facilities, and associated bonding costs? A vote YES means repairs and improvements to streets, bridges, parks, and recreation facilities would be funded through a new one percent (1%) sales and use tax. A vote NO means repairs and improvements to streets, bridges, parks, and recreation facilities would not be funded through a new one percent (1%) sales and use tax.
There are no ballot questions in Minneapolis this election.
Can I get a refresher on ranked-choice voting?
Ranked choice voting is an electoral system where voters rank candidates by preference on their ballots. The candidate that receives a majority of first-ranked votes wins. If no candidate receives a majority of first ranked votes, the candidate with the fewest first preference votes is eliminated. Voters are not obligated to rank all candidates.
