In 2018, Michigan voters amended our state constitution to end partisan gerrymandering — we took the power to draw voting lines away from politicians in Lansing and gave it to the new Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission.
Like the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission (MICRC), the Michigan AFL-CIO is a nonpartisan organization composed of Democrats, Republicans, and independents. We’ve been fighting for fair legislative representation for half a century, and we are proud to continue that tradition with the Fair Maps Project.
Our intent is to provide to the MICRC a set of state legislative maps for their consideration that follow the requirements outlined by the Michigan Constitution, and that accurately represent the wide diversity of our membership and the state of Michigan as a whole. We hope that our work here can be informative and useful to the Commission as it works to draft fair maps for Michigan’s next decade.
The Fair Maps Project – including all maps, datasets, and supporting documentation – has been updated to reflect the 2020 Census results.
