Get Out and Vote!

Campaigns and volunteers are winding up their work. Candidates have made their cases as to why they deserve your vote (or don't). Now it's up to you all to get out and vote!
If you don't know where to vote, click on this link for the city of Minneapolis poll finder.
Remember that ballots will be different this year due to IRV. HAWKMAN ADVISES: Because this is a new system, DO NOT BE SHY about asking an election official if your ballot is filled out correctly, and DO NOT HESITATE to get a new one if it is spoiled.
Furthermore, just because you can rank up to three choices does not mean there are three (or even two) candidates deserving of your vote. If you feel only one person meets that criteria, leaving the other spots blank will not spoil your ballot. But in that case, your one choice must be your first and only choice.
