But the election was yesterday RT @radiok: Minneapolis Election Special Episode- In this episode of Real College Podcast reporter Isaac Maruyama takes the reins bringing you a special election day episode! Coming up we have information on how to vote, discussions of three major ballot measures, a breakdown of the mayoral https://pic.twitter.com/4grLvuzQuA

Officially, I received 2 #1 ranked votes for mayor - up from 1 in 2017. I wonder who the other fellow was?

It's hard to pick between "turns out he's unvaccinated" and "shilling crypto on Twitter" when it comes to how A-Roj has disappointed me this week. I guess at least when he was shilling crypto on Twitter he was still gonna play on Sunday

3.11 00:00 Yesterday's lo/hi: 30.7º - 42.1º

(Ignoring that Jacob has 12,803 #2; 10,824 #3, probably a supermajority of which are not from the Kate/Sheila voters if they truly didn't rank Frey - it'll be WAY more interesting if they ignored the hashtag, and as we've seen MPLS Twitter is not MPLS) 4/4
2.11 22:58 
Having said all that, Kate has way more potential votes to pick up (34,982 #2; 7,687 #3) than Sheila (21,519 #2; 7,934 #3) and starts out only 3891 votes behind Sheila so .... the RCV will be interesting. 3/4
2.11 22:48 
in a hypothetical final round when it'd be down to just those two, Jacob somehow not picking up enough #2 and #3 ranked votes along the way. Looks really unlikely. I don't like it, but them's the numbers. Happy to be proven wrong if you see something different. 2/2
2.11 22:48 
Here's how I see it. We're most likely stuck with Frey for another four. Even if Sheila got ALL her #2 and #3 ranked votes, she can't get more votes than Jacob has now. Kate MAY have a path but she has to pass Sheila before she could theoretically pass Jacob ... 1/2

@LouRaguse @dbrauer (the final tally in 2017, I mean - https://vote.minneapolismn.gov/media/-www-content-assets/documents/2017-Mayor-Results-Summary.pdf )
2.11 22:40 
@LouRaguse @dbrauer Exhausted ballots' share is still a share tho - the final tally had Frey 44.69, Dehn 33.46, Exhausted 21.85

(I see a path for Kate Knuth but somehow she has to pass Sheila Nezhad before the last round in order to theoretically pass Frey - I don't see a path for Sheila at all)

Maybe beer instead of ice cream tonight, but I'll wait for my home precinct to come in first

RT @kanadgupta: ok i wasn't sure how this would go but... we have data pouring in for 50 (out of 134) mpls precincts!

this data is 100% anonymous and dependent on crowdsourcing, so if you see someone posting their voter # on your corner of the internet, pls submit it!

2.11 16:29 @hack0tv Why, did somebody yell at you?
2.11 16:16 
@d_feldman Technically, it would eliminate standard time as we'd be on DST permanently? I think we should probably switch it up completely and call it Minnesota Standard Time because CST and CDT would become "interchangeable" terms with someone (me) aways saying they're using the wrong one

2.11 13:42 Ironic that @TechSmith sends so many #*$% emails about how I can & should make the shift away from using email...

One from Saturday(!) actually said "Stop repeating yourself" in the Subject line!

Yeah, 3 emails in 7 days - really practicing what you're preaching there, my dudes

2.11 10:50 RT @WedgeLIVE: If the mayor has always had "complete power" over police, and the police budget is up by $14 million since Frey was elected, maybe it's not about "defund" or "14 bosses." As polls open this morning, consider this possibility: maybe Mayor Frey is consistently bad at his job. https://twitter.com/WedgeLIVE/status/1455504973718908929/video/1

Only have two choices for Minneapolis mayor? Writing in me WILL count in the first round! (Then, I'll be eliminated and they move to your #2 and #3 ranked candidates.)

Rank CRZ

Don't forget, Minneapolis friends - if you only found two people to rank for mayor, write-ins for CRZ count in the first round of voting! Rank me #1 and #dontrankfrey! Also vote #noyesyes
