Michigan Independent Citizen’s Redistricting Commission Public Hearings
October 26 @ 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm
You can attend a meeting near you and speak via zoom at any of them.
Public Hearings run from 1-3:30pm and 5-8pm on the following dates:
- 10/26 – Flint – Dort Center
Public comment encouraging partisan fairness remains vital.
The MICRC’s partisan fairness review showed:
- Their most recent statewide state Senate map favors Republicans by 7 percent
- Their most recent statewide state House map favors Republicans by 9 percent
- Their most recent Congressional map favors Republicans by 2 percent
The Commission is tasked with drawing fair maps, that undo political gerrymandering. Their maps need significant adjustments across the state to be considered fair. If adopted, these plans would create a Republican-controlled legislature for the next decade.
Time for public comment will be provided at the beginning of every meeting this week.
Please note: The MICRC voted to limit public comment to 1 minute for each speaker.
