  • Redistricting Reform Town Hall - Battle Creek

    The Voters Not Politicians ballot committee and grassroots organization Count MI Vote are co-hosting Redistricting Reform Town Halls across Michigan, and we're coming back to Battle Creek!

    This is an opportunity for voters to learn about gerrymandering and discuss solutions. It will start with a fun and engaging introduction to the facts, then move into a discussion to hear from you and your neighbors.

    Like any good town hall, your ideas and concerns will be heard, your questions answered, and your input used to keep building a campaign that reflects the will of all Michigan voters. 

    Admission is free, and all Michiganders are welcome (including young ones)! However, space is limited, so please RSVP!

  • Voter Power Pizza Hour: a fundraiser for VNP

    Join friends, neighbors, volunteers, and other supporters in Allen Park for a fundraiser to benefit the Voters Not Politicians campaign. 

    Michiganders have made their preferences known: we hate gerrymandering, and we love pizza. You can cover both bases at the same time by supporting Voters Not Politicians in the most delicious way possible: by eating pizza!

    For one night only, 25% of the proceeds from Major Tomato's full menu of delicious food will be donated to Voters Not Politicians. 

    VNP is collecting signatures in all 83 counties of Michigan, and that takes a lot of people and money, especially for an all-volunteer organization. Printing petitions, shipping supplies, getting our message out- it's an expensive endeavor, and we need your help to make it successful.

    (We'd challenge you to carve your pizza into a stranger shape than Michigan's current voting districts, but we doubt that's possible.)

    Join us for Voter Power Pizza Hour because voters should choose their politicians, not the other way around!

  • The Harvest Party: a joint fundraiser for VNP and Food Field

    We're having a party! Join friends, neighbors, volunteers, and other supporters at this urban farm in Detroit. We're celebrating the fall harvest of apples, sweet potatoes, and other great stuff-- and supporting the critical ballot initiative to end gerrymandering in Michigan, by raising funds needed to rock out this statewide petition drive.

    Farm Field will have cider pressing onsite with their farm-grown and locally collected apples, sweet potato doughnuts, chili and other delicious food, local brews and a bonfire to gather around. Performances by Kubat, Finlay, & Rose; Sigrid Christiansen; and others. We'll even have a gerrymandered piñata for all to take a whack at!

    All Michiganders are welcome (especially young ones!) and donations will be accepted towards Voters Not Politicians' ballot initiative and Food Field's soon-to-be-built livestock fence.

    VNP is collecting signatures in all 83 counties of Michigan, and that takes a lot of money, especially for an all-volunteer organization. Printing petitions, shipping supplies, getting our message out- it's an expensive endeavor, and we need your help to make sure we succeed.
