Everything you need to know about Michigan’s Redistricting

Chamber Blog, Community News |Jan 10, 2022|1 min read

Redistricting is the process we use to change the size and locations of districts to determine who represents local citizens in government. On December 28th, Michigan’s Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission (MICRC) approved three final maps for U.S. House, Michigan State House and State Senate. These lines, drawn for the first time by an independent commission, will serve as the election boundaries for the next decade.

As the country’s population grows, it does not grow equally, and some cities, villages, townships and counties grow much larger than others. This means district boundaries have to be periodically readjusted to account for new population information. It is very important for you to look at these new districts to understand who represents you and your business.

View the maps below to see the changes and who will represent  you and your business after the 2022 elections.
