November 4, 2021
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey won a second term, defeating opponents who aligned against him in a campaign focusing heavily on his track record on policing.
City officials announced that Frey won after two rounds of ranked-choice voting tabulation. Challenger Kate Knuth came in second in the final round, pulling in 38% of votes compared to Frey's 49%.
In a victory speech Wednesday afternoon, Frey said the election marked a turning point for the city to put aside politics and unite to address safety, accountability, economic inclusion and affordable housing.
