Our article in the Star Tribune on February 13, 2014 presents evidence from the 2013 elections in Minneapolis that Rank Choice Voting leaves open voting gap that favors white voters and the affluent. In particular, our statistical analyses of voting results reveals a clear pattern: voters who were more affluent and white turned out at a higher rate, completed their ballots more accurately, and were more likely to use all three opportunities to rank their most preferred candidates compared to voters living in low-income neighborhoods and in communities of color.
