APPLYING TO SERVE ON THE COMMISSION
In 2018, Michigan voters took the politicians' power to draw their own election maps away and put that power in the hands of voters by creating a fair, impartial, and transparent redistricting process. If you are a registered Michigan voter, you are eligible to apply!
The Secretary of State’s office has officially opened the application process! The application window will be open through June 1, 2020. Click here to find the application.
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.
