Minneapolis Rejects Police Overhaul Measure

HeadlineNov 03, 2021

In Minneapolis, Mayor Jacob Frey is in the lead after the first round of the city’s ranked-choice vote. Minneapolis voters rejected a measure to replace the police with a Department of Public Safety. Meanwhile, in Austin, Texas, voters have overwhelmingly rejected a referendum to require the hiring of more police officers.

[Editor’s Note: On Wednesday’s program, we also reported voters in Oregon and D.C. approved ballot initiatives to legalize or decriminalize some psychedelic substances. These votes occurred in 2020.]
