Michiganders Encouraged to Participate in the Redistricting Process (Again!)

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Michigan’s court-ordered legislative map redrawing for seven state House districts must move forward. Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson encourages Michiganders to take part in upcoming public sessions of the Michigan Independent Citizen’s Redistricting Commission (MICRC) to redraw the seven state house districts.

The U.S. Supreme Court denied the Michigan Independent Citizen’s Redistricting Commission’s request for a stay, pending appeal, in the Agee v. Benson case challenging the legislative maps drawn by the Commission and implemented in the 2022 statewide elections.

All meetings are open for public participation online via Zoom and on the Commission’s YouTube channel. Details are available at under the “Meeting Notices and Materials” section. Visit to learn more.

Detroit Residents: On Thursday, January 25 at 7:00 PM, the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission wants to hear your comments about redistricting the Michigan House of Representatives districts impacting the city of Detroit residents.
