Grand Rapids Democracy Initiative Petition Launch

Thu, Jul 11, 2019 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

Join the Grand Rapids Democracy Initiative - GRDI for an informational happy hour. Ballot Committee members will be available to answer questions about the initiative and to train volunteers interested in gathering signatures.

About GRDI:
This ballot initiative would allow Grand Rapids residents to decide if they would like the city re-districted into 8 wards instead of three - with one commissioner per ward. The second piece of the initiative would require the city to hold elections for seats vacated mid-term rather than appointments by sitting commissioners.

Our city has doubled in size since our 3-ward system was put in place. This initiative would increase representation and decrease the cost of running for a seat on the city commission.
