Michigan has brand new electoral maps designed through an innovative new process, and the state's politics will never be the same. This webinar will analyze and evaluate Michigan’s new redistricting approach and new maps. The discussion will offer a national perspective, comparing Michigan’s new approach of an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission with approaches in other states. Will Michigan's new model inspire reform in other states? Join us for a lively discussion on these critical topics that will shape elections and decision making in Michigan for the next decade.

This is the final redistricting webinar in a series sponsored by the Center for Local, State and Urban Policy (CLOSUP) at the University of Michigan’s Ford School of Public Policy, Voters Not Politicians (VNP), and Michigan State University’s Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR).  Co-sponsors: Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, League of Women Voters of Michigan, University of Michigan’s Program in Practical Policy Engagement, and Detroit Public Television. 

The purpose of these webinars is to educate and engage the public in Michigan’s redistricting process.  There will be time for questions from the public after brief presentations from the panelists.  Please also submit your questions in advance when you register for the webinar here.
