ED-00018: Minneapolis Election Data
The 2009 Minneapolis Data contains the results from the election for the Parks and Rec Commissioner and Tax Assessor in Minneapolis, MN. The set contains about 30,000 votes over 7-400 candidates. The full data sets contain ballots along with write in candidates (Mikey Mouse and Yoda are well represented). The No Write In files contain the same votes removing any write-ins and modifying the votes accordingly.
Note that these elections were conducted under a ranked voting system which allowed blank entries. In processing this data for PrefLib we have ignored blanks and only report the order over the candidates.
The data on this page was donated by Jeffrey O'Neill who runs the site OpenSTV.org.
