Consultation has concluded

At the November 2020 General Election, Bloomington voters approved an amendment to the City Charter that adopts Ranked Choice Voting as the method for electing the Mayor and City Council members. The City is now working to implement this change in time for the November 2021 municipal election.

This fall, all Bloomington voters will see one of the Councilmember At-Large seats on their ballot this November, and voters in Council District 3 and Council District 4 will also see their District Councilmember on the ballot. (The other Councilmember At-Large seat plus the Council District 1 and 2 seats and the Mayor’s office are next up for election in November of 2023.)

An opportunity to practice casting a ballot using the Ranked Choice Voting method will be available at City Hall, August 2-6 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    This spring the City Council will enact an ordinance to guide the implementation of Ranked Choice Voting. One of the key decisions the City Council will need to make is how many candidates each voter may rank for a particular office (Mayor and City Council elections).

    For example, here is what some other cities have in place:

    • Voters can rank up to their top 3 choices
    • Voters can rank as many candidates as there are on the ballot

    The purpose of this survey is to gather community feedback for the City Council to consider when making their decision. 

    This survey will close on March 15.
