2013 Minneapolis Voter Guide


In 2013, all Minneapolis city council seats and the mayor are up for election. The streets.mn board developed a short series of questions related to transportation and land use designed to give voters more information and expand the conversation about these topics. Surveys were sent to all the candidates we could find, and responses will be posted as they are received.


Podcasts of interviews with council or mayoral candidates are also listed below. If you're a candidate, and would like to be interviewed, please contact us.


Streets.mn is non-partisan and does not endorse candidates as an organization.
