Saturday, August 15th, Bloomington Patriots volunteers visited the Farmer’s Market at Bloomington Civic Plaza to educate about the pitfalls of Ranked Choice Voting replacing our long-standing traditional voting opportunities. Yes, we had our masks with us, and we wore them at various times, but it was a beautiful fresh air kind of day outside. We were very encouraged by the number of people who wanted to know more and spread the word.
A brochure can be found at the RCVscam website for those who want to understand what RCV is and why it is not a good idea.
More volunteers will be needed for various pop-up campaigns like the one at the Farmer’s Market, phone calling, neighborhood lit drops and sign placements. Please let us know how you can help. We need to “Save Our Vote”. Lawn signs should available by August 22. Please contact Kathy Kranz with your location if you are willing to host a lawn sign.
Since the highly organized and sponsored FairvoteMN has raised $100,000 recently to convert Bloomington and Minnetonka to Ranked Choice Voting, neighborhood residents have now stepped up to fight for your right to have your vote legitimately counted. Bloomington Patriots, a growing group of concerned Bloomington citizens organizing this Campaign has registered with the Campaign Finance Board so they can “officially” fight against a referendum. Funds are needed for yard signs, door literature, banners and various permits. Please consider a donation to: Bloomington Patriots Committee, PO Box 385266, Bloomington, MN 55438 or email Kathy Kranz at SD50Minnesota@gmail.com for more information.
