The Only Residents of Precinct 3B Have Fins or Gills

“One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish” is about all the polling results that came out of Minneapolis Ward 10, Precinct 3B this election, which seems to exist entirely in the east half of Lake Calhoun. During the redistricting process, a computer error caused the new ward boundary lines to be drawn so that all of 3B is in the water.

Barry Clegg, who chairs the line-drawing Charter Commission, told the STrib that they couldn’t draw the line around the edge of the lake without putting a census block in the wrong ward so they had to put a line across the lake. So as long as the bluegills and walleyes remain apathetic citizens, there will not be a single registered voter in the precinct.
