THE JUNE 2020 CITY OF FARGO ELECTION was just a little different than before because it’s the first time we got to use a better system to elect our commissioners.

Now, it's like giving a thumbs up or a thumbs down to each of the candidates instead of just one or two.

Because of this, approval voting is flexible:

Like several candidates?
  Approve them all.
Only like one candidate?
  Approve just that one.
Only know who you don't want?
  Approve everyone else.
Worried your favorite doesn’t have a chance?
  Approve your favorite plus a few more you like.

In the end, the candidates with the most votes will win, just like they always have.

It’s that simple.
