Commission Application Process
The Secretary of State office has announced that the application process for the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Process will open in late 2019.
You can apply to serve on Michigan's first Commission if you are a registered Michigan voter.
WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY?
- Be a part of Michigan's history - Only 13 registered voters will serve on Michigan's first Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission. These Commissioners will be tasked with drawing the first set of election district maps under Michigan's new redistricting reform amendment.
- You have the power - Before Michigan passed the redistricting reform amendment, politicians had the power to draw their own lines. Now, voters - not politicians - have that power.
- Help represent Michigan fairly, impartially, and transparently - You can help ensure that that all Michiganders are represented fairly in the next set of election district maps!
- No experience is necessary - You don't need to have a PhD or years of experience as a cartographer. As a Commissioner, you'll have access to data, tools, and experts who will help you draw the lines.
