It’s been one month since the city of Minneapolis tested ranked-choice voting on a large scale, and now an advocacy group is sharing its analysis on how it went.

According to exit polling, voters thought ranked-choice voting should continue. FairVote Minnesota said requested changed included reducing the number of candidates, adding more than three ranked choices, and using new tabulation software.

Thirty-five candidates entered the Minneapolis mayor’s race this year. The filing fee to enter was only $20, and now the council is considering a proposal to increase that fee to $500.

A forum will talk about the analysis and the future of ranked-choice voting. It takes place at 5:30 p.m. Thursday and Fredrikson & Bryon in Minneapolis.
