Minneapolis' elections are in just a few weeks. I wanted to put together a handy guide for Minneapolitans heading to the polls. We've got info about ranked-choice voting, the charter amendments, and candidates for City Council.

You can share this out at ilhanomar.com/voterguide/
You can vote on Election Day - Tuesday, November 2nd - or early! I love how easy Minneapolis makes it to vote. For a complete guide on early voting, visit vote.minneapolismn.gov.
Minneapolis will have the chance to vote on a number of crucially important amendments to our city's charter. I strongly support both the public safety and rent stabilization amendments. VOTE YES ON QUESTIONS 2 AND 3!
We'll be voting on all of our City Council seats in November. I'm proud to endorse the following candidates:
Minneapolis uses a voting system called Ranked Choice Voting. It can be a little confusing if you aren't familiar with it. Here's a guide on how RCV works, and a sample ballot to help you fill in your own.

Given the human rights violations in Gaza, Sheikh Jarrah, and ever-growing settlement expansion, we should not be ramming through a last-minute $1 billion increase in military funding for Israel without any accountability.
As my colleague, @BettyMcCollum04 has pointed out, this language was added without the knowledge or consent of relevant committee chairs or proper budgeting.
This vote is not about simply funding the Iron Dome. It’s about adding an extra billion dollars on top of the $73 million we already allocated this year. That’s 14 times more than we normally spend on it and 60% of what we’ve provided for it over the course of a decade.

Today, I joined forces with @RepSchakowsky and others to ask the State Department to create a Special Envoy to Combat Islamophobia.

Here’s why.
We are seeing a stark rise in anti-Muslim hate in this country.

According to brand new data, this year has seen over 500 documented complaints of anti-Muslim hate and bias in the U.S.
This includes everything from hate crimes, harassment, school bullying, discrimination, hate speech, and anti-mosque incidents, and a sudden uptick in mosque attacks in May and June.

I am someone who has survived war and experienced injustice firsthand, who is alive today because I was welcomed into this country as a refugee.

I know that many of my colleagues—both Jewish and non-Jewish—deeply share that commitment to fighting injustice. A brief thread.
I also know that the Black community and the Jewish community have historically stood side-by-side in the fight against injustice and throughout our history we have faced efforts to divide us based on our differences.
In this moment, we must stand in solidarity because what unites us is so much greater than what unites us.

The Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s was not Black people working in isolation.

Gandhi said “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” I think that’s true about congressional offices, too.

This is but a minuscule step on the path to justice. Next stops:
* Independent agency to investigate police misuse of force
* Criminalize violence against protesters
* Demilitarize police departments
* Disband and deconstruct failed police departments
* End traffic stops for minor equipment violations
* Federal investigations into departments who utilize practices like arrest quotas
* End the school-to-prison pipeline
* Ban all racial profiling by federal, state, and local agencies
* Legalize recreational cannabis nationwide, expunge the records and seek amnesty for those incarcerated for cannabis-related offenses
* Restore felon voting rights
* Ensure that formerly incarcerated individuals are fully supported in their transition back to society
