The burned out Third Precinct at the corner of E. Lake Street and Minnehaha Avenue in Minneapolis, seen on July 16. Voters could face competing ballot questions in November, as the city debates how to remake policing in Minneapolis after George Floyd's death.

The move sets the stage for competing ballot questions in November, as the city debates how to remake policing in Minneapolis after George Floyd's death.
