Ranked-choice voting amendment passes

City Council approves second reading

Atticus Raasch

During a city council meeting May 7, the council voted unanimously to pass a vote to approve the amendment of the city charter allowing for the inclusion of the ranked-choice voting system.

This follows the first reading of the amendment which was read at a public hearing April 16.

According to the City of St. Louis Park website, the ranked-choice system will officially become part of the city charter after 90 days, allowing for this method to be used in the voting of the mayor and council member positions in November 2019.

The Echo will continue to report on the passing of the ranked-choice voting system.
