Ranked Choice Voting Implementation Update #6
On May 1, 2008, the City of Minneapolis issued a Request for Proposal for services and equipment needed to conduct the Minneapolis municipal elections using the method of Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), also known as Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) or Single Transferable Vote (STV). Proposals were due on August 1, 2008 at 4:00 p.m.
Proposals have been received from the following vendors and are listed alphabetically:
- Elections Systems and Software, Inc.
- TrueBallot, Inc.
Following an initial review and evaluation of the proposals by City Elections staff, finalists will be selected. Proposers identified as finalists may be subject to a demonstration process which is expected to end no later than January 9, 2009. The date of contract approval and execution are dependent upon terms to be negotiated with the successful vendor.
The Minnesota Government Data Practices Act requires that only the names of the responders are public data. All other information regarding the proposals is classified as non-public, and therefore accessible only to the proposers themselves and to government officials whose duties reasonably require access.
The proposals and their contents (with the exception of trade secret data) become public data, accessible to everyone, when the City has completed negotiating the Contract with the selected Contractor.
