JXN Community Forum: Redistricting in Michigan

Date: 
Thu, May 17, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

City:

Should Politicians Choose Their Voters?

Learn what Redistricting is and how it is affecting you.

Today, Michigan Legislators choose their voters, but democracy requires that voters choose their legislators.
Is this changing?

A presentation by the League of Women Voters will explain gerrymandering, including its history, the current situation in Michigan, and methods used by other states to redistrict. The Michigan ballot initiative, to have an independent redistricting commission, will be explained, along with its current status.
