Minneapolis voters to decide on police replacement measure

Those headed to the ballot box will be faced with electing a new mayor and other initiatives, including whether they approve of a city charter amendment to replace the Minneapolis Police Department with a Department of Public Safety, which would be under the control of the mayor and city council. 

A majority of voters, meaning 51%, would need to endorse the measure for it to pass.
