Reallocation for Saint Paul City Council Races

The election night results will display the results of the first choice votes on the Secretary of State’s election results website. If the top candidate in a ward receives an absolute majority (50% of the votes, plus one vote) of first choice votes, they would not have to go through the reallocation process. If a ward does not have a candidate reach the absolute majority on election night, that council race would then need to go through the reallocation process.

Starting on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 8 a.m. at the Plato Building, the election judges will begin sorting and facing the ballots. The reallocation of ballots will then begin on Friday, Nov. 10 at 8 a.m. This process is open to the public.
