Statement by Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson on the adoption of final maps by the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission
DECEMBER 28, 2021
Today, Michigan’s first Independent Citizen Redistribution Commission voted across party lines to adopt new district maps for our state, completing the most open, independent, and leadership-led redistribution process. citizens of Michigan history.
The new maps are the culmination of years of work, led by millions of Michiganders from all walks of life. They ardently advocated for empowering citizens to draw their own neighborhood boundaries and made their voices heard throughout the process.
Our democracy is stronger through the commitment, leadership and vision of Michigan citizens for a fair, inclusive and transparent process that puts voters above politics and ends gerrymandering in Michigan once and for all all.”
