The Last-Minute Hennepin County Candidate-Picking Tool

If you’re still stumped for a choice in Tuesday’s Hennepin County Commissioner election to succeed Gail Dorfman, have we got a tool for you!

Note: this tool only covered the April 29, 2014 primary. Subsequent endorsements and support will change answers for the May 13, 2014 general election. We’ll either publish a new tool or cover the options in general-election stories.

Tuesday is the primary to succeed Hennepin County Commissioner Gail Dorfman, whose district covers St. Louis Park, and southwest and downtown Minneapolis. (Polling place finder here.) If you haven’t studied up, we’ve built the Last-Minute Candidate-Picking Tool©.

Start with any of the 20 yes/no questions most important to you, and choose the next-most-important, until your candidate emerges — it won’t take many questions. If you want to try a different path, just start over.

And if you’re hungry for more, please read our candidate interviews and op-ed. Those stories are also linked under the candidate photos.
