St Paul Positioned to Have the Most Transparent Election in State History

There is one benefit of the Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) system and that is the improved quality of voting machines purchased by Ramsey County in 2015. These new machines will be taking a picture of every ballot cast in the St Paul elections and later will be made available to the public on the Ramsey County website.

This means we will finally know how everyone in St Paul voted and we will see if voters used the RCV system correctly, or if the participated in casting multiple ballots at all. Anecdotally, only about 30% of the electorate casts more than one ballot.
