On Thursday, Oct. 4, voters who want to know more about Ballot Proposal 2, which would create a nonpartisan redistricting commission to end gerrymandering in Michigan, can head to an educational event organized by the National Council of Jewish Women, Michigan as part of its advocacy work protecting voting rights. The event is free to the public with prior registration and begins at 6.45 p.m. at the Farmington Hills Main Library.
Currently, legislators draw voting maps without input from citizens. Proposal 2 will establish a redistricting process that is transparent, nonpartisan and citizen-driven.
Speakers include Kate Fahey, founder of Voters Not Politicians; Dr. Joe Schwarz, former U.S. Congressman, former Michigan state representative and state senator (Republican); and Andy Meisner, Oakland County Treasurer, former Michigan state representative (Democrat).
