Congratulations Elections Department!

The Minneapolis Elections Department has won the prestigious Guardian Award from the National Association of Election Officials, for its work to implement Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) in the municipal election in 2009. This award recognizes work that exemplifies the association’s code of ethics, principles, and standards for the elections profession. In presenting the award, the National Association of Election Officials noted that “the enormity of the task and the level of detail it encompassed were mindboggling as they developed processes and successfully hand-counted an RCV election. This is an example of our profession at its best.” Congratulations to all of our Elections staff, and especially to interim Elections Director Ginny Gelms.
