IMPLEMENTING AN INDEPENDENT CITIZENS REDISTRICTING COMMISSION
On November 6, 2018, 61% of Michigan voters passed a redistricting reform amendment with overwhelming support for Proposal 2. This amendment put the power to draw future election district maps in the hands of voters - not politicians. Now, Voters Not Politicians is focused to make sure the Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission is implemented fairly, impartially, and transparently.
Our focus is to:
against future legal challenges lead by the same special interests who tried to keep us off the ballot
by mobilizing our grassroots base to hold lawmakers accountable for protecting and fully funding Michigan’s redistricting process
Michigan citizens about the new redistricting process so they engage and participate in the process
MAKING MICHIGAN A STATE POWERED BY THE PEOPLE
Michigan’s Constitution begins with the phrase, “All political power is inherent in the people…”
Voters Not Politicians is working to make Michigan a state where voters - not politicians or special interests - hold political power and are at the epicenter for political reform and policy. Our work protects, advances, and fosters the rights of voters to participate and engage in democracy.
Voters Not Politicians built a grassroots, citizen-led organization from scratch that was able to tackle a successful ballot initiative in 2018. Our volunteers collected more than 425,000 signatures to get Proposal 2 on the ballot with no paid signatures. Now, we’re in the process of planning what future initiatives and issues our organization will tackle next.
