In 2022, for the first time in the state’s history, Michigan voters will participate in a State Primary Election and a General Election under new, “ungerrymandered” district maps drawn by an independent citizens redistricting commission. For the first time, Michigan communities have the power to vote for representatives they can hold accountable.
The Voters Ed Fund will work to grow voter participation in Michigan’s 2022 elections:
Educate voters with tools, information, and resources to help them cast their ballot.
Promote early voting options such as expanded hours of service at local clerk offices, how to vote by absentee ballot, and options to return an AV ballot.
Empower community-based nonprofits through subgranted partnerships.
Develop educational materials for digital/social media campaigns, and direct voter outreach.
How We’ll Do It:
The Voters Ed Fund will grow voter participation by developing community partnership programs, educating voters on early voting options, and providing voters with tools to help them cast their ballots.
