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.
