JXN Community Forum: Should Politicians Choose Their Voters? Redistricting in Michigan

May 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join us at the Carnegie Branch! 

Learn what Redistricting is and how it is affecting you.

Today, Michigan Legislators choose their voters, but democracy requires that voters choose their legislators.

Is this changing?

A presentation by the League of Women Voters will explain gerrymandering, including its history, the current situation in Michigan, and methods used by other states to redistrict. The Michigan ballot initiative, to have an independent redistricting commission, will be explained, along with its current status.

The JXN Community Forums are free and open programs to facilitate dialogue about challenging issues of our day. This forum is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters and the Jackson District Library.

For more information, please contact Jackson District Library via email at reference@myjdl.com or by phone at (517) 788-4087.
