St. Paul voters used Ranked Choice Voting for their third time this fall to elect members of the city council. RCV is a tested and trusted voting system that St. Paul voters approved in 2009 and have used in both 2011 and 2013. RCV upholds majority rule, helps ensure more representative outcomes and encourages civil campaigning. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!
In all but one race – Ward 2 – winners emerged on Election Night with the majority of first choices needed to win. On Monday, November 9 the Ward 2 reallocation was completed in just four hours and Rebecca Noecker emerged as the winner with a decisive 53% of continuing ballots.
Our 2015 Election Results page has a full recap of the result in each ward.
